'The Truth About Len Deighton', BBC 4

Well, did anybody on this board see 'The Truth About Len Deighton' when it was broadcast on BBC 4 in January. I did and it was a very good interview with contributions from others who know him such as Michael Caine, Sir Max Hastings and Peter Evans. There were reruns of Billion Dollar Brain and The Ipcress File on the same night.

Did you get to see a recorded copy of the documentary Kees? (I saw your image of Len showing Michael how to cook!) There was also, rather interestingly as far as this site is concerned some archive footage of the Russian army in Berlin shining mirrors into the cameras to distrupt shooting on 'Funeral in Berlin'. This fact can be found on the trivia page on this site. It was great to see the actual footage. There were a few clips from the Palmer films on the documentary.
