Saturday, 22nd August 2009 (First broadcast September 1999)
00:15am to 01:15am
Autobiographical documentary in which Ian Dury, fighting a battle with cancer to which he would later succumb, recalls his life and career. Including contributions from painter Peter Blake and members of Dury's band, the Blockheads.
Notes on the rip: This is an upgrade on the version currently on the site. When it was first broadcast in 1999 it was shown letterboxed in 4:3 format. This looked cool and edgy at the time. but looks very silly on today's 16:9 screens. Therefore I've chopped out masses of black space from top, bottom, left and right leaving only the picture and a slightly strange aspect ratio.
I'd also like to say a big thanks to XT who brought us the first rip of this show. Good work mate.
