Clive gave an interview which made one of the best such TV programmes that I have ever seen: intelligent, moving, reflective, insightful - and entertaining as well as immensely thought-provoking.

It's a pity that the programme wasn't given more mainstream scheduling.
Still, BBC4 do tend to repeat things, so if you missed it this time, look out for it again.
It may even appear on BBC2 eventually (perhaps in the "after Newsnight" slot).

Incidentally, tonight (Tues Aug 1) BBC4 are screening a programme about Aussies which features Mr James, among others (at 9pm, I think, rptd at 12.40am, I think).

Yet was there a single mention of the songwriting after the introduction? Was there buggery! Anyone know if it was edited out, or whether the subject just never came up?
(By the way, Pete, still no sign of the Hillside catalogue on emusic.com. I know, I know, too busy. But I really do think you'd reach a lot of new people all over the world through a site that's very well patronised by the more mature downloader).
