Back from Stockholm, and BBC 4 rocks

So I returned from Stockholm this afternoon, regretting the fact that I didn't have more time to explore what looks like an interesting City. It's also manageable in size - the sort of place you could begin to get to grips with in a weekend. Pictured above is the view from the Wine and Spirit offices, through sleet and snow.

Only four puppies left here now. Three go tomorrow; the last one, our unofficial favourite (named 'Yellow' by us after its identification tag), goes on Sunday.

Just watching a BBC4 programme on Bob Dylan's performances at the Newport Festival in 1963, 1964, 1965. (See review here and watch it for the next week here). I love this sort of programme. I'm fascinated by the 1960s and 1970s, and, in particular, the way that music has developed. It's so great to be able to see this sort of thing on TV: here are these people witnessing Dylan's emergence, sitting there at a festival, some caring about the music, others just enjoying the atmosphere. These carefree, tanned 20 year olds are now in their mid-60s.
I was born in 1967, and that seems an age ago now. What fascinates me about history is how different things were in the past, but how people haven't really changed at all. And the fact that now we are making tomorrow's history.

Hi Jamie, the internet version cannot be watched outside the UK, for some reasons that somebody will find cogent... But I shall watch the program on satellite sunday night, thanks for the pointer.

I suspect it's territorial copyright law
