'Don't Be Denied' Documentary on BBC

From - News:
"A new Neil Young hour long documentary entitled 'Don't Be Denied' is to air on BBC Four next month.

The television special is a first for the reclusive singer with the BBC documentary gaining new interviews with Young, nine months apart in New York and California.

Screening on October 31, the documentary will also look back over the singer's archives, with some never-seen-before material.

The programme will be shown just a few days prior to the expected release date of the first set of Young's much-delayed 'Archives' project."

Thanks B.S.M.!

More on the possibility that hell will freeze over.

Brilliant news ! Every recording device in the place would be set now, if I could. Now to set up all the alarms & reminders...

Yes & rightly timed pre The Archives. Guess they are Neil's birthday present to himself (& nicely timed for mine :))

The BBC have shown the 1971 "Neil Young in Concert" before & also "Unplugged". They might respond now to several requests for them to be shown again.

Thanks, Thrasher and the BBC for the ticket! It was a pretty cool little documentary feature. The biggest selling point for me was the amazing never seen before archive footage (the Squires stuff was hilarious), though this was interspersed with a lot of familiar archive footage. The intreview with Young was pretty neat too as he wasn't so cagey and was actually pretty forthcoming. There wasn't a lot of information here for the more hardcore Neil Young fan, but it was a nice overview of an amazing career. I guess the focus of the documentary was the pursuit of his own muse and the collateral damage that it creates. It was a nice portrait of the artist, but I felt a tad let down as it felt extremely rushed when it went into the latter part of Young's career (most of these docs usually focus on the 70s heydey and this was no exception). The soundbites from Crosby, Stills and Nash were very good though. All in all a very entertaining documentary. Shame that Young didn't quite get the Scorcese treatment given to Dylan, but how do you manage to fit an entire career and a body of work as immense as Neil Young's into a mere 60 minute slot? P.S- the night that this is airing on BBC 4 is Neil Young Night. They will be showing CSNY Deja Vue and the BBC in Concert show from 1971. Woohoo! :) Cheers again, Thrasher!
