Django backing George Orwell

Post by Gypsyjazzer »

Apologies if someone has already posted this. On top of which it's not really an 'International Event' either, but I couldn't think of another heading to put it under.

There's a interesting play on the BBC Radio4 website at the moment - George Orwell's "Down And Out In Paris And London" with music performed by Django Reinhardt.

The first part of the play has about six or seven of Django's recordings included as incidental music, and it can be listened to again until Sunday lunchtime at the internet address below.

Don't know if there'll be more from Django in Part 2, but it's scheduled to be broadcast on Sunday 28th April 2007 at 15:00.

PS. Ignore the mix up of dates/titles shown on the website - it looks like they're broadcasting Part 2 before Part 1, but they're not. The one you can listen to again at the moment is Part 1.
