Those esteemed broadcasters at BBC Two will be showing career-charting Blur documentary, No Distance Left To Run later this week. It'll run on Sunday March 14 at 22.50, but will obviously be on iPlayer for a week or so, as well as probably being repeated at a later date, though I hold no responsibility if it isn't.
Andrzej Lukowski wrote of it:
"No Distance Left To Run, Parlophone’s new documentary about Blur's summer 2009 reformation, manages to combine these two sides admirably. On the one hand the average village idiot could suss out that the emergence of both this film and last year’s Midlife album represent EMI’s best attempts to wring some product out of the painfully short reunion. On the other, Ross McLennon’s cinematography is absolutely ravishing and was quite clearly worth the bob or two it surely cost. The quasi-intimate footage of the band is nice enough, but it’s actually the more staged things that really click here, lush, colour-saturated shots of suburbia and English mundanity that chime perfectly with band’s own aesthetic."
So, going on that, it's at least worth a quick flick. Click here to read the full review of the documentary. Or not, should you be unwilling to 'spoil' it for yourself for some bizarre reason.
iPlayer may very well be your best bet, as it clashes with The Brothers Grimm on BBC1 and Silent Hill on Channel 4. That's not mentioning Shakespeare In Love, Mad Men and Balls Of Steel. Just sayin'. The programme is also followed by a screening of Blur's Glastonbury performance from 2009.
