With amazing good fortune, as I had not seen a TV guide and my dish is 
usually looking at a Eutelsat I happened on this programme (and very
near its start). What is more I had just got to know the Partita that GG 
played all through. I was absolutely spellbound seeing this amazing 
genius, really for the first time, that I had got to know so well by 
sound alone. (I did catch a minute or so of GG playing Goldbergs on the 
same station about two years ago).
The only departure from this amazing bit of luck was when I discovered 
in my rush to stuff a cassette into the machine that my daughter had 
left it on "long play" so the sound's not top quality. (I've murdered 
her, of course).
Thanks for the info, I didn't know there was more to come so I am 
ticking off the minutes till next Friday.
Why don't we get this on the BBC!
