Originally slated for January, this interview has been brought forward in the schedules as a tribute to award-winning British director Ken Russell, who died aged 84 earlier this week.
Filmed in August, this turned out to be Russell’s final TV interview. He talks with pop artist Sir Peter Blake about their childhoods and careers, how he managed working with such strong personalities as actor Oliver Reed and The Who’s Keith Moon, and how, to his dying day, he would always have a crush on Glenda Jackson, who worked with Russell on his film Women in Love.
Living the Dream: Sir Peter Blake Meets Ken Russell is on Sky Arts 1/SA1HD on Sunday 15 January at 8.00pm
