    It is pretty good, as is King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King.

    ^ Thanks for the tip-off, Ommadawn. I've just checked the TV Times and Tubular Bells: The Mike Oldfield Story is on BBC 4 at 9:00pm. It is labelled as being 'new'. There is also a programme called Tubular Bells: Mike Oldfield at 10:00-10:25pm. Both are repeated later. Synth Britannia is on as well. I'll definitely be watching.

    I wasn't aware of Man on the Rocks.

    I wasn't aware of the new album and missed the docu, maybe it will be repeated?

    Look out for the repeat Sweaty, it was good. The following progamme was the Tubular Bells live on BBC TV from 1973 with Mick Taylor and Steve Hillage. I remember watching it at the time and I haven't seen it since.

    I've just searched the Radio times site and the docu is on iPlayer.

    Mike Oldfield announced a new album yesterday on Facebook. It's called "Return To Ommadawn" and comes out on January 20.

    Ooh Yes

    still awaiting the new album its on the to play pile just not in the mood for listening to progressive rock to fully appreciate the album fully I need to sit and no distracting me with any other outlet I even turn the landline off so I don't lose my momentum when I am soaking up the concept
