Subject: Nick Drake on BBC4 tonight (UK)
Just a brief heads-up: BBC 4 Friday 16th:

9:00 The Songs of Nick Drake: Way to Blue

"Filmed at the Barbican in January 2010 and curated by Joe Boyd, producer and general champion of Nick Drake, 90 minutes of performance highlights from a diverse but renowned cast of modern day troubadours."

22:30 Nick Drake: A Skin Too Few

"I always said that Nick was born with a skin too few", says actress Gabrielle about her brother, the English singer-songwriter Nick Drake (1948-1974). This documentary approaches the silent landscapes, locations, people and music in the life of this unorthodox loner."

I know Nick Drake divides opinions, but even if you are remotely interested I recommend A Skin Too Few. It's one of the most beautifully filmed documentaries I've ever seen.
