"Attention Aussies!"
 
   Did any of my fellow Australians have the luck or good sense to record last week's episode of Coast to Coast (Sunday on ABC) featuring an interview with Sylvie Guillem? Usually I record any arts programs on the ABC just in case some ballet eventuates, but I hadn't bothered for the last couple of weeks and now I've missed a highlight!!

   no - i hadn't even worked out that 'coast to coast' was an arts program (is it?), and it wasn't in my program, anyway (due to election coverage, messing up the schedules, i guess).

i saw some of it, though, by chance, and it was quite a good interview - but very brief, as far as i could ascertain.

it IS bothersome that our TV programs will devote multiple lines to giving away the (more or less predictable) plots of each episode of 'soaps', and then give NO info whatsoever about the unpredictable content of documentary programs, like these.

there was also an excellent coverage of the STAMPING GROUND mens dance festival at bellingen (NSW), recently, on SBS 'global village' program - you would never know to watch these things...

good luck finding the tape you want.

   I have rung the ABC and they do not have a tape of this interview of which I saw the last minute or so. Sylvie was talking about the attraction of classical ballet vs modern dance. She had some very sensible things to say on this subject and I found myself agreeing with her completely. You can only hope that another ballet.co poster has recorded the interview and sees your message. Good luck!
