bbc four

in the middle of april i will be attending a discussion group on the subject of bbc four. your licence fee money will be paying me £50 for the inconvenience, and i expect there will be hot beverages and an assortment of biscuits. if there is anything you want me to say, then post a comment. think of me as a conduit by which your opinions might be heard.


  • I would like to see more music-type films that don't involve folkie types sticking their fingers in their ears. So, for example, let's see all the Beatles films, including Let it Be. And things like The Last Waltz, Renaldo and Clara.
    And they need to have a word with me about the kinds of people they should get in concert. Or buy in a series like Austin City Limits, or film the whole festival.
    I'd like to propose an idea for a raiding-the-archive "clips and talking heads" series based on "TV Music Moments That Changed My Life." So interview a variety of people (not celebs, though maybe some musicians) and have them talk about the night they jumped out of their chair when they saw Lynyrd Skynyrd on Whistle Test, or The Jam on Tiswas, that kind of thing. And show the clips.
