Seeing the last clip of him in '81 was really sad, he had trouble talking and was so thin. Some people thought he was drunk and others thought he'd had a stroke.
Oh Parkinson: The Interviews, I've got that too.
Oh BBC4 collections for anyone who hasn't seen the bit n bobs they've got out of the archive.
get_iplayer downloads them if you're that way inclined.
The full Bronowski interview is there too, was never broadcast in it's entirety apparently.
Oh Picture Parade with Joan Crawford is rather creepy for some reason.
