In BBC Radio 4’s ten-part series Walt Disney: A Life in Films, presenter Mel Giedroyc steps into the magical world of Walt Disney, exploring his extraordinary life through the stories of 10 of the much-mythologised genius’s best-loved works.

The animation mogul’s storytelling magic has irrevocably influenced western pop culture, but there is depth and tragedy to his tale too. For Walt, storytelling was an escape from an oppressive father and a respite from periods of deep depression. He was a creative genius whose brilliance masked deep vulnerabilities that he did everything to hide from the outside world.
