Russell on the ITV News and at The Stoller Hall   …

Postponed   …   no new date yet. 

Since posting the item below, events have meant that the recorded interview was not shown this evening and a new time and date is awaited.

+

Russell is calling for support for the live entertainment industry and it’s expected that he might be seen on the ITV News from 10.00 pm on Thursday 24th  10.30 pm tonight, Wednesday 23rd September.

PLEASE NOTE that according to the TV schedules the News doesn’t start until 10.30 pm tonight due to the earlier programme being a feature length one from 9.00 pm. Confirmed with The Stoller Hall.   Best not to set your recording device(s) too early.

+
It looks as though an interview has already been recorded at The Stoller Hall, Manchester, where he proposes to hold a special concert once the restrictions are eased on the number of people who can gather at such live entertainment events.

Tickets to that concert aren’t likely to be available on general sale but may be won as part of a fundraising campaign for the live entertainment industry.  Follow the links to The Stoller Hall and from there you can donate via “CrowdFunder“.

BBC  Songs  Of  Praise   … 

Russell was featured at the start of Sunday’s recent episode of BBC Songs Of Praise … that is Sunday 13th September.

More than a few folks didn’t see him on that initial broadcast, possibly due to a little confusion over the start time which was the usual 1.15 pm and not the 1.30 pm that had managed to get posted here and there.

Fortunately, even if you did miss Russell’s performance of “How Great Thou Art” all is not lost thanks to it now being available as a clip on the BBC web page.

The whole programme, if you should want to see it all, is available for the next four weeks (29 days left) on BBC iPlayer.

The  Monastery  Of  The  Battle   …

Russell’s late evening one-man show at Batalha, Portugal was a great success … so much so that he appears to be planning a return trip.

The following is from Leiria TV News and the commentary is, of course, in Portuguese though Russell chats in English in a post-performance interview..

There are also lots of pictures on the Facebook Page of  Turismo Centro de Portugal.
