South Bank Is Cool!!

Since 1978 the South Bank Show is dedicated to providing insights into the world of art and artists. I dont mean like paintings I mean like films, music (classic and modern) books and obviously actually artworks, many usually dismiss this show as an old person thing but it's quite insightful the recent ones on REM and Lord of the Rings have been quite good and Melvyn Bragg is a good enough host.

Watch It.
