Red, White and Zero embodies the creativity and audacity at the heart of swinging 60s cinema. Comic legend Zero Mostel stars as an opera singer, navigating the London transport network in full costume as he attempts to reach Covent Garden in Ride of the Valkyrie. The White Bus, scripted by Shelagh Delaney, blends realism, drama and poetry as a young woman travels home to the North of England. Vanessa Redgrave stars in Tony Richardson’s romantic musical featurette Red and Blue.
