I missed that. Shame to hear your thoughts on it Zip, I saw him perform live a few years back and it was a terrific show, he had a very peculiar brand of showmanship, kept me entertained yet somehow managed to offset my initial state of 'this jammy bastard is going to try messing with my head'. Very clever really, the finale being a great rug swept form udner my feet moment. I believe a version was recorded a version and later shown on telly. Wasn't quite the same, the multiple camera angles and brisk editing were detrimental to the game he was playing, made personal involvement far harder.
