SEEN LATELY: GRAHAM FELLOWS, COMEDIAN
Sunday 07 March 1999
I saw a preview of a programme made by the stills photographer Martin Parr, called "Think of England" - it's in BBC2's Modern Times series. It's just great. In one scene he talks to people in motorway service stations who say how holidays in England are wonderful as they sit in their car eating sandwiches. It's very amusing and very arty.
I watched The Big Breakfast this morning which is completely bonkers. I never liked all this "in yer face" TV. Johnny Vaughan is a talented guy but he sat there like some dictator with a court of sycophantic followers. However, it is visually compelling - it's got a soft-porn quality. You want to tear yourself away but you can't.
