A fascinating glimpse into filmmaker Greenaway's mind as well as his
interaction with his daughter and wife (who filmed this documentary).

Stunning scenery but often very difficult to follow. It's the accents that do it...

The missus has been watching this of late via Netflix. I watch in every now and then, lol It is interesting, more so for the fact "Graham Coxon" from Blur does all the music score for the series (knowing how big of a fan I am of his work, etc, I have to watch).

Yesterday we watched part one of a three-part series on BBC-TV about Liberal politician Jeremy Thorpe, brilliantly portrayed by Hugh Grant. It reminded me of this picture taken in 1967 of Thorpe with Hendrix:

Thanks, Rich. Pity I get some privacy shit which I refuse to accept. 

I've just watched the last instalment of this excellent Welsh detective series on Dutch TV:
