Freud: The Secret of Dreams (S1EP3 BBC-2 28 Sep 1984, Juliet Stevenson)



The Secret of Dreams: Vienna 1891. Now set up in practice at 19 Berggasse, Freud is enthralled by the revelations of his patients which relate, invariably, to matters sexual—a theory of neurosis begins to evolve. Breuer’s cautious reaction threatens their collaboration, driving Sigmund to an intense new friendship with Wilhelm Fliess whose radical thinking matches that of his own.
