The latest, and rather surprising addition to this bandwagon is Dave Stewart, the songwriter behind Eighties sensation The Eurythmics. Tonight's Omnibus (10.50pm BBC1) is an intriguing psycho-biography of the man and his depressive illness.
There is also, of course, an interview with Annie Lennox, singer with The Eurythmics and Stewart's former lover. She talks about the split and how they really can't stand each other, and spouts the most irritating egotistical therapy-speak this side of - well, name any American actress. Shame her music these days is such horrendous bilge.
Stewart himself comes across as diffident, wry and massively talented. Some of his new material, seen here in rehearsal, is blindingly good - the single "Heart of Stone" was the happiest slice of stomp-along postmodernism last year had to offer. It sounds callous, but I hope they keep him away from the Prozac for a while yet.Reuse content
