Got mine in Brizzle today at Rough Trade, where Emily and Michael were signing them. Absolutely drenched getting there and then had to stand in the rain for about half an hour before getting into the

Not fucking Coat Paint Knee again.

Anybody knows if there are plans for any kind of documentary like the 2006 one? I'd love to see something like that done which includes the last 13 years. And the 50th seems like a good excuse.

Had no idea that had taken place, what 2006 documentary would that be?

I would imagine the bbc could have something planned for broadcast around festival time next year, maybe a behind the scenes look at the preparation for the festival . The logistics involved and the work done throughout the year by everyone involved.  We’ve had snippets in the past during the bbc coverage, but a full documentary would be nice for the 50th.

I’m welcome a documentary, particularly as much archive material as possible.

I still feel the BBC just touches on the festival experience and I’d love to see a film of all significant areas of the site, should be much more interesting and distinctive rather than the usual back to back main stages coverage.

Yes, I’ve got most of  the bbc coverage since 2014 on my sky planner, they do small snippets of the organisation and behind the scenes such as Michael giving a guided tour of the site to local residents etc but there is surely scope for a more in depth documentary for the 50th.

Knight's chippy in the town, referenced in the new book by ME, is apparently the oldest in England.

A mere 110 years?

How do they get away with that BS claim?

Plenty round by me started in the 1860s and 1870s.

correct :) 

Aghh, bingo. I've just had the tiniest bit of a smoke, so my clarity on things had gone awry. However, it was always heading in that direction in any case. The reason for this is the level of stress that I'm currently under, which is what actually led me to have that smoke. All will be revealed in my next post on this thread, which must also serve to thank somebody for their honesty and actions.

I'm so stressed out right now, it's off the scale. I'm using the time on here to actually give me a bit of time to prepare for tackling the tsunami of shit that has washed up on my plate today.

Anyway, I'm so stressed that I got it wrong - the reasons for the stress will be not found on CHAT, but on the DISCUSSIONS page, under the thread title CONFESSIONS.

I've read up to 2015 now, it feels like such a journey, memories of all the festival's I've been to since 97 coming back to me, a little sadness at the few years I missed when my boys were really little.. now I'm even more determined not to miss the 50th.  The book has so many interesting insights into the festival and how its developed.

I am so grateful to Michael and Emily,  they've really put everything into the festival and I hope they know how much it means to us all.
