Autopsy on a Dream

Digital Season | Documentary | Includes 'The Dream of Perfection' prologue

Time: Thursday, 9th July 8pm AEST

Rediscovered in recent years, this BBC documentary is as extraordinary as its provocative subject matter — the dramatic story of the building of the Sydney Opera House, culminating in Utzon’s departure from the project. Containing a new prologue called ‘The Dream of Perfection’, it tells the fascinating story of the lost film and brings the story up-to- date, featuring interviews with Sir David Attenborough, architect Richard le Plaistrier, plus many others.
