We thought we ought to remind you that David’s on television tonight, just in case it slipped your mind.

Be sure to tune in to BBC2 at 9PM to catch David on ‘Three Men in a Boat’. As we revealed over at www.davidgilmour.com back on 20 December, David will encounter comedians Dara O’Briain, Griff Rhys-Jones and Rory McGrath as they journey up the Thames in a rowing boat, recreating the journey immortalised by Jerome K Jerome in his 1889 comedy classic of the same name. Unannounced, they decide to visit David…

That’s BBC2, tonight, at 9PM. Don’t miss it – and let us know what you think of it.

As you’ve seen from past blog entries and Polly’s photos, David has a fine group of musicians working with him on his new album, many of whom will also be touring with him… and there are more surprises to be revealed shortly.

You’ll recognise Caroline Dale, who played cello so beautifully at David’s 2002 shows in London and Paris. She also founded Ghostland, who acted as the support for those shows.

Caroline has appeared with leading orchestras all over the world, including the London Philharmonic, Royal Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Calgary Philharmonic, Halle, English Chamber, London Chamber and London Metropolitan Orchestras.

David contributed to her 2002 debut, ‘Such Sweet Thunder’, on the track ‘Babbie’s Daughter’, which he co-composed. On this album, Caroline plays various classical pieces, including Handel’s ‘Sarabande’, Pablo Casals’ arrangement of ‘Song Of The Birds’ (Traditional),  Vivaldi’s ‘Concerto in G Minor for Two Cellos’, and ‘Largo from Vivaldi’s Cello Sonata in E Minor’, as well as her own compositions.

You can visit Caroline’s website to find out more at www.carolinedale.com.

Another exclusive picture coming tomorrow.

Enjoy ‘Three Men in a Boat’ tonight, all those who can receive it, and do keep your comments coming in. There have been some terrific ones lately, for which we thank you.
