Keith Meets Keith
Monday, 14th September 2009
10pm to 11:10pm
Keith Floyd disappeared off the media radar a few years ago after he collapsed in a Midlands pub. Actor and documentary-maker Keith Allen was hugely influenced by Floyd's anarchic presentational style, and is determined to track down his long-time hero. He finally locates him in rural France.
This documentary is the record of their meeting in and around Avignon. Both known for their wild lifestyles, it's unsurprising that the two Keiths immediately hit it off. The result is a compelling profile of Floyd's life, as well as his musings on the current TV chefs, the mendacity of television, the state of modern Britain, and the human condition.
A funny, thought-provoking and moving encounter between the man who 'deconstructed television' years before the phrase became fashionable among the media-savvy, and a protégé who has continued that tradition. The two men are seldom at a loss for words until a surprise appearance by Floyd's daughter, whom he hasn't seen for 10 years.
