"Discovering Hammershøi
4 Jul 2008
Michael Palin talks about how he first came across the work of Hammershøi, what it was about it that so impressed him, and how he and his colleagues from BBC Glasgow set about the tricky task of finding out more about the artist himself. "
You lucky, lucky Londoners ! I so want to be there, I want to cry:)

Also there is a screening of Complete and utter history of Britain in JUNE to which Michael and Terry both will do an introduction. I haven't found out more about it, but I'll post when I have.

Scroll a bit down and you can see this :
25 June 2008
Michael Palin and Terry Jones introduce The Complete and Utter History of Britain.
The comedy legends introduce this special screening of their 1969 sketch show, once thought lost but recently rediscovered via the BFI's Missing Believe Wiped initiative.

Now I want to kill myself.

Thanks, Kisch! I was just about to check ticket availability (£10 per ticket for this lecture) before I put this up myself.

I will apply for 2 tickets - husband & self - anyone else up for it?

(Kisch, So SORRY! There will be other times you can make it...)

Yeah I'll come, if it includes an air fare ticket from Australia !!!

Alas no, but come anyway before the air-fares get out of reach!

That's it. I must come to England as soon as humanly possible or Michael needs to return to the States. *sigh*

Thanks Kisch and Linda for letting us know. Linda, I have booked my ticket and hope that work doesn't keep me late that evening!

I'll be in touch nearer the time, Sue. We must at least arrange to say Hello this time!

Hey, if those of you in the States want to see "The Complete and Utter History of Britain", I found it on YouTube.
