I told you i was ill. [Dec. 19th, 2005|04:39 pm]


Anyone see this program about Spike Miliigan the other night. It showed a lot of previously unseen home video footage from the Milligans personal archive of the man, including interviews (and presentation/narration) with his daughters and last wife. It was a very nice tribute to a man aimed more at his personal family life, including his love affair with Woo Woo in Australia, a town which now holds a annual Spikefest in his honour.

I was fortunate enough to be the recipient of a raspberry from the great man, For some reason about 10 years ago he was taking photos in Birmingham Town centre (i don't know why either but 'tis true) Me and my mate saw from about 30 yards away, and realising he had been recognised, he pulled his tongue out at us and walked off.

I love Spike Milligan too! He was so quick with his wit. I love comediens in general they still have a child within them.
BTW I think the town is called Woy Woy!
Kind regards
