TELEVISION / The Critics

The South Bank Show (Sun ITV) on Paul Simon: 'The programme . . . was not a repeat, it just felt that way - partly because little has happened to Paul Simon recently; partly because a BBC1 Omnibus covered much the same ground in 1988 . . . What emerged, however, was an interesting question-mark over whether this man is a show-off.' Lynne Truss, Times

'We end by knowing Simon himself no better but with a programme that homes like a smart missile on the Graceland row.' Hugh Hebert, Guardian

'Another treat . . . an extended South Bank Show on Paul Simon.' Max Davidson, Daily Telegraph

'Uplifting rockumentary,' Gary Leboff, Sun
