Transcripts of Platform talks with Philip Pullman, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, Nicholas Hytner, Nicholas Wright, Dominic Cooper, Anna Maxwell Martin and members of the production team for His Dark Materials, all chaired by Robert Butler, author of The Art of Darkness. The discussions, which took place during the first run of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, are lively and entertaining debates about some of the themes and issues in the trilogy. They also throw light on the various aspects of adaptation and staging and decision-making that brought Philip Pullman's hugely successful epic to the Olivier stage.
