BBC4 are repeating Caledonia Dreaming and Edwyn Collins:Home Again on Friday 18th at 10.00pm and 11.00pm. From what I can remember of Caledonia Dreaming, great first 15 minutes or so and the rest was Hue & bleedin' Cry and Deacon Blue (the poorman's Prefab Sprout)
watched the documentary this week and can honestly say it was one of the most awe-inspiring things i have ever seen in my life - Edwyn and his family are an inspiration to us all , was already looking forward to the gig at the deaf institute next month - now can hardly wait . the first gig i ever saw at the hacienda was orange juice in 1982 . my wife , son and some good friends will be with me also at the gig - as i said earlier 27 oct cannot come quick enough . for anyone who missed it - it is still on the bbc iplayer BTW
