    ALICE IN WONDERLAND is said to be the most quoted book in print, second only to The Bible, with a passionate army of fans who regularly congregate around the world to celebrate its rich and playful world. But what of its creator, the mild-mannered and unassuming Oxford University Math Don, Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, aka. Lewis Carroll?
    Famed not only for his wonderful stories, Carroll is also known for his ambiguous relationship with the young girl who inspired his most beloved creation, Alice Liddell, a seemingly innocent infatuation that he documented in his pioneering photography.
    With contributions from the likes of thespian Richard E. Grant, social commentator Will Self and author Philip Pullman, at once adoring and provocative this documentary casts a conflicted eye over the creation of Wonderland. Pouring through historical evidence and stories passed down through generations, hear the tale of Carroll’s first encounter with the three Liddell girls and the first telling of Alice’s tumble down the rabbit hole one summer’s afternoon in a boat upon the River Thames. Documentary first broadcast in 2015.

"Those who see ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault" OSCAR WILDE _The Picture of Dorian Gray_ Preface.

In an era when people have access to all sorts of perversions and even see most as normal...these minds try to pervert a young artistic man in a much healthier society. Men has always been the leaders of femals and used to marry them early since we develop early...I would say that a ten year old girl back then was probably more intelligent and mentally mature than the 20 year old females of today

At around 30 minutes we can see how so many pedophiles walk free even today. People tend to denie the truth of a loved figured. Being this a man you admire, your husband, or even your father. Up to this day we see horroble cases and family and friends can only say "but he was an honorable, I don't believe it"

Pedophiles r the most protected class in our society.. Without a doubt! I see it proven by people in this documentary desperate to clear his reputation cause he wrote a book. I know to my own sorrow how ugly this world is towards the most innocent in society who should b protected & nurtured... Heartbreaking

Yes it's apparent imo. Carol was a strict introvert who probably haven't had the chance of getting cosy with girls in his younger days, thus his love of young girls.

If Lewis Carroll was an open homosexual this whole documentary would have been "HE'S A PEDIFILE" 100% from start to finish . Look at this straight white male privileged. It's so clear he was a pervert and a pedifile. No one in their right mind as an adult would takes pictures of children like. The child has no idea what it means to be photographed in this manner and is being manipulated. Just because a physical sexual act wasn't performed doesn't mean the abuse isn't there. This is deeply inappropriate and disturbing. The documentary got this all wrong and should have not ended on such a light note WTF!!!!!!

Amazes me how people think child molestation arose out of a vacuum in the 1980s. Ffs, according to RECORDS, it never went on pre-1980s, so OF COURSE it never went on! I postulate that child molestation has gone on since the dawn of man. Records of most of it, however, do not/will not exist.

That nude photographs were widely excepted then and not now only means: a) people were naive b) pedophilia was excepted. How people viewed children was vastly different.

Makes me wonder how people in 150 years will look at our culture and wonder if our norms are actually more dirty/perverted. Or, perhaps they may say we are too prude or closed minded. Pictures of child stars for example. Or children who wear a lot of makeup. Nude beaches where children are also allowed to run naked when strangers about. I'm not here to defend or accuse Charles because honestly, it's gray and I have our own cultural biases which I acknowledge. Only ones who know are the families and Charles himself, and God.

Why is there this morbid fascination, filled with smutty speculation, about a magical writer, who probably had a normal, healthy attitude towards children in general, and Alice in particular. Oh I know! We've entered the hysterical age of paedogate, where everyone on the planet is suspected of being a potential perv. What a sad reflection of our age, and the sniveling weasels who whip it all up; i.e. the lamestream media.

Young girls used to have to marry older men and conceive children at a pretty young age. Our standards keep getting better, but it doesn't surprise me that no one really found it odd an older man was hanging with younger girls. The comments are shaming the parents for allowing this but take in the age of consent was 12 years old! That is so young. People are quick to brush off, "well it was a different time"... But it really was a different time. No doubt pictures of this manner are weird and creepy to us now because as a society we disapprove of it. In that time period there were others taking nude pictures and getting famous for it. We can assume all we want but we don't know the truth of what happened.

Of course, a relative of Lewis Carrol would say such a thing. This dude had some serious obsession with Alice Little, it can not be denied. Overall, he had a thing for little girls in general. There's nothing in common a man of his time would have in common with little girls. Even in today's society, we need to stop normalizing 14-17 years old as a "normal" relationship that can develop some sort of romance. There's a difference between those ages; one preparing to go to college and have a real graduation ceremony, while the other just had a graduation of self-identity.

Nude photos of people of any and all ages, are not considered pornographic unless they have an apparent sexualized context.... such as suggestive poses (legs spread wide open for the apparent reason to expose private parts, for example), an emphasis or focus on breasts, bums or genitals, or actual or implied sexual intent for taking the photo. A simple nude photo is not pornographic if there is no evidence of a sexual context, no matter how young or old the photographic subject may be. This is the law in most countries which don't have a set of laws overly influenced by religious ideals (as in many Islamic countries, where it can be illegal to even hold hands in public!!

Seems highly likely!! However, this doesn't at all diminish the wonderful charm and delightful imagination of his literary works. Lots of people who did important things in history, or who created great works of art, or who were splendid entertainers, had character elements which were pretty dodgy, or even downright nasty - as in the case of Charlie Chaplin for example. Their accomplishments nevertheless stand. If a mass murderer was also an amazing engineer who designed something like say, the Eiffel Tower or the Sphynx, their accomplishments in one area are not diminished by their shortcomings in other areas.
