Lotte Reiniger is one of the most original figures in the history of the cinema. Nearly 50 years ago she made the first full-length cartoon film - The Adventures of Prince Achmed. Tonight REVIEW looks at her unique method of working and shows for the first time on television a section from Prince Achmed, which having been lost for many years has just been reprinted with sound and in the original colour.
