Just a quick reply.

You need to tell PovRay which version you are using as there is a 
difference between the current 3.7 and 3.6

Your camera is looking at a white plane behind your spheres. That is one 
reason you are getting no transparency.

Use a background colour with transparency set to 1

Like Bald Eagle it is a long time since I used the Alpha channel and a 
long time since I slept. Maybe someone not in Europe will pick this up.
