    5. Mmm.. This is about Tim's career overall. Which I will watch..

      But this was specifically about his work with The Cure..

    6. It's not about Tim really, it's about The Cure's videos and just happens to focus on those made by Tim.

      The other shows in the series have generally had multiple directors talking, it's much more about the artist.

    7. The link Alain has put up is to do with Tim's music video career as a whole.

      The link that Tim put up was about The Cure's music video career and Tim's involvement and seemed to be more recent with Robert's take on earlier clips ie BDC..
      Just curious as to why he would make a point of the time limit.. Would be something to do with the copyright of the show?
      It's as much his as it is theirs.. :p

  4. It seems to be a programme from 2013 called "Video Killed the Radio Star - Extended Play: The Cure" in which Tim and Robert talk about videos for Let's Go To Bed, Boy's Don't Cry, Why Can't I Be You, Inbetween Days, Close To Me, Pictures Of You, plus there are some small extra bits of footage at the end.

  5. It was on Sky Arts just two or three weeks ago. They love a bit of Tim on there, have seen him on other video shows including him chatting away with Marc Almond, on what looks like the same stretch of south of England coastline.

    1. Actually have just checked my Sky app, there are 23 episodes of Video Killed coming up in the next week. They've all been on many times before, so anyone with Sky should see it pop up again soon.
