Film details

Alternative titles

  • A Coney Island of the Mind Alternative
  • Lost Lawrence Alternative


Two items: the first A CONEY ISLAND OF THE MIND follows Irish musician Van Morrison travelling to the Wicklow Hills and his native Belfast.

The second, LOST LAWRENCE discovers the paintings of D.H. Lawrence, seized by the police in 1929 because they were deemed obscene and only saved from destruction because Lawrence took them, into exile with him. The ban being technically still in place HM Customs could seize them if imported so the programme exhibits photographs of them inviting comments from painters and critics.
