Arena special on BRIAN ENO: Another Green World (BBC4)
« on: January 22, 2010, 10:57:17 AM »
:D  Hi to all Eno lovers (I'm guessing there's a few here).
The BBC have been making some great music based programmes and here's another that is destined to be essential viewing. The fabulous TV series Arena has made a one hour special about one of my all-time musical heroes, the one and only Brian Eno. Sorry this is late notice, but it's first showing on BBC4, Friday 22nd Jan at 21.00, although it will be repeated. Here's a quote:
"Eno has given Arena unprecedented access to observe him working in his studio and talking with friends and colleagues. The master of reinvention engages with fellow influential minds, including Richard Dawkins, Malcolm Gladwell, David Whittaker and Steve Lillywhite, in a series of conversations on science, art, systems analysis, producing and cybernetics."

Here's a link to the info:

And here's a link to the BBC blog about it:

As if that wasn't enough, right after it at 22.00 is another one hour show called Brian Eno: Hits, Classics and Tracks, where Paul Morley talks about some of Eno's hit tracks, either as musician or producer.
Here's the link for that one:

And here's the tracklist for that show to whet your appetite (OK, you might not like them all, but there's some real classics here!):
Roxy Music Virginia Plain
Roxy Music Ladytron
Roxy Music Grey Lagoons
Nico The End
David Bowie Heroes
David Bowie Boys Keep Swinging
Ultravox My Sex
Devo Jocko Homo
Talking Heads Once in a Lifetime
Brian Eno & David Byrne The Jezebel Spirit
U2 With or Without You
Passengers Miss Sarajevo
Coldplay Viva La Vida
David Byrne Life is Long

Also, if you missed it first time around, right afterwards they're repeating The Roxy Music Story yet again at 23.00.
Here's the link for that one:

If you miss any of these shows they'll all be repeated at some point, so keep your eyes open, and as usual they'll also be available on the BBCiPlayer for a while:

The BBC are spoiling us!

Arena sounds like a great show in general, wish I could get it here in Los Angeles. It reminds me of another UK show I use to see back in the 1980s on the old A&E cable network called The South Bank Show. In any case thanks for the heads up, but I probably won't be able to see it. :(
Take care.
