Frank Zappa
The Late Show Special Part 1 of 2
BBC2 TV Broadcast 23rd July 1993.

Here's a capture of the BBC Late Show honoring FZ that was captured on VHS by Fergy and transferred recently to DVD. It is a little different from the version that's been here for some time. Just two disks instead of three, and the content is strictly limited to what was presented on The Late Show.

TheTooleMan
November 2015

What follows is taken from Fergy's info file:

BBC2 TV (Analogue)>Ferguson Videostar 6 head Hi-Fi VHS VCR (master)>Philips stand alone DVD recorder>Authored using Magic MEP.

The Late Show - Part One: Documentary
A brief history of Frank Vincent Zappa in 12 chapters.
Featuring interviews with:
Frank Zappa
Jim (Motorhead) Sherwood
Matt Groening
Ruth Underwood
Steve Vai
Dweezil & Ahmet Zappa
contains clips from live performances.
Run time:- 47:30
Note: the opening 2:10 minutes is from a different source.

Notes stolen from Anders Uhl Pedersen @ http://globalia.net/donlope/fz/videography/BBC93.html:
English TV broadcast an FZ special a couple of times and one of the times with 1 1/2 hours of prev. unreleased live material (mainly).
It was broadcast in "The Late Show" in the summer of 1993 including interviews with FZ, Dweezil, Ahmet, Jim "Motorhead" Sherwood, Ruth Underwood, Steve Vai and "The Father of the Simpsons" (I'm sorry, but his name eludes me for the moment.) The "videos" afterwards includes a BBC recording of King Kong (not broadcast since the late 60's), a lot of live material from various tours and some "videos" of Baby Snakes, Night School and G-Spot Tornado.

Whenever I find Zappa stuff anywhere I realize: there's no place like Zappateers to get your Zappa stuff. Thanks so much

This aired on American television exactly *ONE* time, and I missed it because my parents locked me out of the house and I didn't have a key on me. I was SO PISSED!

That's maybe why they locked you out..... drunk

nb: Being ''pissed'' means something different over here.... If I had been in your situation I would have been ''pissed off''...

Oooo, if only my old English teacher could hear you now.......
(In this case I think most Brits would think of one thing when they see/hear that someone was ''pissed''...... despite us having as many words for 'drunk' as the Eskimos have for snow.....)

I'm just finished watching the documentary "Pink Floyd - The Story of Wish You Were Here" on arte this evening.

In that documentary Roy Harper said something like this " ... and I was peed off".

Just another idiom? Wink
