This is an entirely new dramatisation of Bunyan's masterpiece. Although cuts have been made to turn the story into dialogue form, nearly all the familiar characters remain, and the glorious language of the allegory, written more than 250 years ago, cannot fail to make this a notable television occasion. All the incidental music has been culled from sixteenth and seventeenth century sources.
