    Thanks LD, I really cant wait for this doc. Basil's music has almost been the soundtrack to my life since I was 7 years old having watched 'The Abominable Dr Phibes' what must be approaching a thousand times. I can still remember that as the end credits finished on an old Betamax recorded off telly version it cut to the start of an 'Incredible Hulk' episode at the end, its kind of ingrained into my head that as 'over the rainbow' finishes it cuts to 'Bill Bixby' radiating himself in a swivel chair! I was always obsessed with the music in that film especially the locust scene, the bouncing bassline and sweeping melodic line.

    Finding out he was such a maverick and forward thinking composer kind of justified my obsession.

    I was listening to 'Silicon Chip' the other day and for all it's funky, electro disco weirdness you can still hear his unique and pastoral melodies underneath it all.

    Somehow I'm going to have to con the wife into going on holiday to Hull!
