I wonder if this is 'another compilation' or just the same one that keeps popping up from time to time?

I'm not sure, but they always seem to be playing the same clips.

Not a great fan of John Denver but the BBC4 bios are usually good.

I'm in two minds about John Denver. He wrote some great songs, one of the best, IMO, "Rocky Mountain High", which has some great imagery. "Sunshine On My Shoulders" also appeals to me,
