Fantastic :D 20 past midnight though?! Mind you, I would have expected them to show it on BBC4 and my digital aerial is currently broken, so am thankful for small mercies.

These things are usually on BBC i-Player for at least a week afterwards, so all UKers at least should be able to see it, easily.

Forgot to mention in my excitement last night at the thought of a whole evening of Leonard, that the programmes on the 19th June are on BBC4

Here's the track listing for Live in London on TV:

Dance Me To the End of Love
The Future
Bird on the Wire
Suzanne
Hallelujah
Democracy
I'm Your Man
First We Take Manhattan
I Tried to Leave You
Whither Thou Goest

A fairly predictable and safe selection since it was aimed at the general public, but no complaints. I'm surprised that "Tower of Song"
wasn't included. I also found the last two songs surprising choices. Personally, I would have made sure that "Anthem" was included, but it all held together, pretty well.

All good things, John E

Agree with John about Anthem; personally would have liked to have seen "if it be your will" but did not expect it to be included - so many good songs to fit into 1 hour!

It was a great little 'taster'. Had I not attended that concert (I did, lucky me!) and read all the comments about it here, it would have left me panting for more and really feeling I'd miss a fantastic event (which it was). :-)
