Look forward to that, although I already have the dvd; is this another evening of Leonard Cohen like BBC4 did last year?

that's great, I love watching something on tv knowing that loads of others are watching it too. It seems better than watching a dvd sometimes.

I feel exactly the same way as you confetti, when I watch a Leonard Cohen programme I just know there are all these other nutters just like myself with their eyes glued to the "hopeless little screen", even though I have the dvd on the table in front of me and can watch it any time! It gives me a very warm feeling.

Love to your all

But it's BBC4, there are only 2 or 3 nutters like us watching it at any given time! :lol:

Cheers for letting us know Remote. Like Evie even though I have the DVD it is always nice to watch it on main stream TV
