Murder, fat shaming, nightmarish steamboat rides - terrifying childhood classics don't come much more traumatic than Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, the first major movie adaptation of Roald Dahl's bestselling 1964 novel.
BBC Radio DJ Pete Allison drops by this week to discuss the many, many ways in which this film delighted and scarred us in equal measure, before pitching in with some sequel ideas that conveniently ignore the fact that Charlie & The Great Glass Elevator and that Tim Burton reboot ever happened...
