Welcome to Not Just For Kids. Once a week we will revisit the movies we loved as children, looking at their place in the history of family films, the themes they explore and if they’re any good. Each season we will focus on a different area: be it a particular film studio, director or time period. And each week we will invite a guest onto the podcast who will offer their own perspective on the films being covered that week.
