Lovesong: The Blue Nile: Flags and Fences

This is footage from a long lost BBC documentary on the Blue Nile's 1990 American tour, around the time of 'Hats'.
30 minutes worth...
The quality is not great but worth enduring.
There's a lovely, revealing moment where a radio DJ asks PB "have you been writing on tour?" and he deadpans, "Just postcards."
It's also interesting to note how much the songs have slowed down since those giddy times; the early stuff was pretty pacy; poptastic even.
Buchanan's in fine voice and looks like a real 80s pin up, even with his slight, Duryesque gait.
