There’s A Bit Going On As Wonka Turns 50

2021 marks the 50th anniversary of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, a celebrated piece of classic film and a common household name among others like The Wizard of Oz and Mary Poppins.

With it’s inaugural release in June and it’s Australian release in December of 1971, does it still hold up today in modern cinema history and popular culture?

In today’s episode of Bit Going On, Podcast Producer Tom Denham investigates the different angles of the film’s production as he documents the voices of cast and crew as they each reflect on the significance of the picture not only for themselves, but for people today.
