I Sky+'d the Thin Lizzy and went to watch it today only to see recording failed. Seems in a drink induced haze I unplugged the TV set ho hum

Anyway happy Hogmanay and a Guid Ne'erday folks

There was a 2 part documentary on up here a couple of months ago (try STV Player if interested). The picture I got of him was he was very hard to work with as no one could meet his very high(in his opinion) standards. He didnt do it for me


edited to add; tried finding it on iplayer but it must have been too far back
