A quick google reveals that Michel's followers can't agree (Foucaudian / Foucaldian / Foucauldian), so what hope for Arthur's?. In fact the day appears to be won (on numbers anyway) by "Rimbaudian". But then we know Web authors are ignorant sods anyway, n'est-ce pas?

We know all that already - but it's nevertheless interesting stuff !!

And the discussion, in which Simon Mayo talks to Amanda Ghost, who co-wrote 'Beautiful' with James Blunt, singer songwriter, Martyn Joseph (not Martin Joseph, as the website has it), MIX magazine editor Andrew Harrison and BBC 6 Music presenter, Shaun Keavney (not Shaun Keaney) about the importance of lyrics in songs, is available here as either a podcast or a download.

Erratum: My correction of Shaun Keaney should read  Shaun Keaveny, not Shaun Keavney, as I would have had it. I should have spotted that. I believe that some of my distant relations come from the Keaveny family.

I know that it may be a bit early to consider this as one of the "things happening now", but Clive is at at the V&A*Lecture Theatre on the 7th   of July (19.15-20.05) speaking, in a lecture entitled An Affirming Flame, about the life and work of the poet W.H. Auden.  
 
I'll be willing to wager that anyone who's read Clive's essays on Auden - especially the Farewelling Auden section of At the Pillars of Hercules - would like to be in attendance, as would those of us who think they detect the occasional Audenesque flourish in a few Clive's  poems and  song-lyrics.

They've just finished transmitting the 1st series (July 18th to August 8th) - so what happened to the second?  They transmitted the first 4 series in 2006, but not the fifth.

Clive James: Talking in the Library.  
 
Radio Times lists a new series of this programme starting tonight on Sky Arts (Sky channel 267) and in HD (Sky channel 268) 7.30pm. Emma Thompson is the guest. Previous series have been repeated many times but I don't remember ET so maybe it actually is a new series.

Just add a little flesh to what Carole has written, I can tell you that Sky Arts is now broadcasting recent additions to the third series of Clive James Talking in the Library. This link will take you to Clive in conversation with the Acadamy Award winning  actor, comedian and writer, Emma Thompson and this one to Clive talking to the  comedian, writer, actor, novelist, filmmaker and television personality, Stephen Fry.
 
Enjoy.

This coming Sunday - Sunday 9, September 2007 at 5.00pm - Clive will be appearing on ABC Television (Australia)'s flagship cultural commentary programme Sunday Arts.
 
This is how his appearance is described in Enhance TV's schedule:
 
This week on Sunday Arts Fenella Kernebone chats to cultural commentator, TV presenter, author and poet Clive James. .....
 
 Clive .... talks about his latest and perhaps most ambitious book to date, Cultural Amnesia, an encyclopaedia of all the "paces and faces that shaped the 20th century" presented through Clive's own lyrical, witty and very personal style. Fenella Kernebone chats to Clive about the figures and events that most influenced his view of the world; why he wanted to take on such a huge project; and what impact he hopes his tome will have on the world of letters. Clive also shares his thoughts on where he thinks Australia stands politically, culturally and socially at the beginning of the 21st century

 
The good news is that this programme can be downloaded - the bad news is that you have to be living in Australia to do so.

Drat!!! Why didn't I think of that? I'm not enough of a technophile to know or understand these things, I suppose.
 
Thanks, Steve.

“How refreshing this newly returned interview series is", writes Sloan Freer* about the Wednesday the 12th of September transmission of Clive James Talking in the Library: Stephen Fry (SKY ARTS. 7.30PM) in the Television section of today’s The Observer.
 
Too stimulating and grown-up to be given the derogative label ‘chat-show’, it treats its guests – and its audience – with pleasing respect. Focusing on the cream of British acting, literary and comic talent, the programme is like a relaxed dinner party conversation, allowing both presenter Clive James and his weekly company to talk with depth and intellect about things that Heat magazine  and their gossip-loving ilk couldn’t even contemplate, let alone spell. Tonight entertainer Stephen Fry comes across as affable and not the slightest bit pompous, as he discusses  everything from Britain’s class structure to former performing partner Hugh Laurie and the differences between the UK and US film industries. But most revealingly, he also talks with frankness about his depression, likening his experiences to having it rain permanently inside his head. It’s just a shame the show couldn’t be an hour slot.

Downloads OK though a little slow via the proxy server: 45 minutes for the 56-minute broadcast, as a 185MB .wmv or .mp4 video file. Clive's interview runs for 12 min, 26 minutes in. Transcript here.

Clive James Talking in the Library

7.30pm, SkyArts  
 
How do you edit a conversation with Stephen Fry - for it is he with whom James chats - down to a mere 22 minutes? What of the postmodern polymath's ponderings do you purge - apart from, an awful lot? Brevity may be the sister of talent and usually an underrated virtue, but here you're left longing for longer lingering on the self-loathing of the middle-classes and the odd habits of the well-bred, the difference between "paradoxically" and "ironically" and the down-time of tree frogs, our capacity for wonder and the reasons for rain.

I very stupidly  Embarassed  forgot to watch Clive interviewing Stephen Fry - and to alert other fans of both men to do so.
Anyone got any idea whether the programme will be broadcast again, and if so when?
 
Downloads etc, though doubtless helpful to some, will not solve my problem - it's the TV version I'm after !
 
Would be most grateful for help !
