I must admit, I’d never heard about this documentary, but I wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to hear it. And John was always good at the documentary thing.
At midnight on 29 and 30 January, BBC6 is broadcasting a two-part documentary about Roy Orbison, narrated by Peel, who was always a great fan, and in fact chose It’s Over as one of his Desert Island Discs. Where I live (South Korea), I’ll be able to make morning coffee and toast for myself and my wife while listening, as opposed to staggering back bleary-eyed from the pub and then finding you missed it.
I particularly like a story JP wrote for the Times in 1994 when he described seeing him live just before he died: one wobbly start (with Running Scared, I think), then the voice of a god came through. Sheila believes he would have nominated the Ipswich gig as one of his best ever.
