For those not on the Book of Face:

Rejoice! The powers that be have spoken... the Discworld year known on Roundworld as 2017 shall be named THE YEAR OF THE BACKWARDS FACING ARTICHOKE!

Terry Pratchett: Back in Black, the fourth instalment in the Terry Pratchett documentary trilogy will air in two weeks' time on BBC Two Saturday, February 11. Featuring contributions from authors Neil Gaiman and Val McDermid, and from collaborators such as Stephen Briggs and our very own Bernard Pearson (with an appearance from the Emporium itself) you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll cry some more, cry AND laugh, and want to re-read Discworld all over again. Again.

The initial announcement said "Amazon Prime" first and then the BBC. Anyone know when it's going to be on Prime? Not that I'm impatient or anything.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

I don't know the answer to this, I'm afraid - I've tried to do some searches, but it either returns the BBC air date or the search on Amazon itself it just comes up with AC/DC's album Back to Black :?

I'm confused Pat, where did it say that the Pratchett documentary was been released on Prime first; I've only heard about it being on the Beeb.

But that's Good Omens, as Pat's comment came directly after the announcement for Back in Black, wasn't he talking about that?

Ah, you're right, BiB is BBC only, it's GO that's Amazon Prime.

TEN DAYS TO GO!
