Some of you may know they have been touring this year.
Splendid new CD, too. Three Chords Good. First in 31 years.
This Friday BBC 4 9pm is the film about them, making its UK debut.

Glad to see them back together with barely a hair on their head between them ;-)

BBC4 on a Friday night is always good. Just that sometimes it's even better than others. IMO of course.

I presume the  9pm - 10pm and  23.35pm - 1.25am progs are those shown just a few weeks ago? If so, our very own MM to be on TV again? If so, in the same way it was perfect timing for MJ to be on last weekend, spookily, good timing for MM with this weekends gig.
