    Hallo,
    You've probably all spotted this but anyway...... tonight on BBC4 at 10.30pm (UK) there is a programe about Brian Duffy, including interview with him. Have no idea if it is any good but might be worth a look. I'm looking forward to it.
    Listings detials:
    "Brian Duffy was one of the greatest photographers of his generation. Along with David Bailey and Terence Donovan he defined the image of the 1960s and was as famous as the stars he photographed. Then suddenly in the 1970s he disappeared from view and burned all his negatives. With the first ever exhibition of his work due, Duffy has agreed to be filmed to talk about his life, his work and why he made it all go up in flames."

    This was on a couple of months ago and it is worth watching if you haven't seen it yet.
