Tales From Madrid (BBC Programme)

If you live in the UK, you may be interested to know that BBC 2 is showing a documentary called Tales from Madrid on Wednesday, 9th August 2006. Originally broadcast on BBC Four, this programme is presented by Kirsty Wark and Adil Ray. If they’re anything like other similar Kirsty Wark programmes, they will be well worth watching. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect to see:

Kirsty Wark and Adil Ray go in search of the cultural heart of Spain’s
capital city. Kirsty meets Anna Obregon, the actress and femme fatale
who got on the wrong side of Victoria Beckham, and Michael Robinson,
the British footballer who has become one of Spain’s most popular TV
presenters. Adil tries to keep pace with the locals in a city that is
notorious for all-night partying and finds out how the country is
finally coming to terms with the legacy of Franco through a top-rated
TV drama.

    Hi, just wanted to say that I thought the documentary ‘Tales from Madrid’ was fascinating. Unfortuantely I didn’t record the programme and I desparately want to get hold of a copy for my brother who lives in Madrid. Any idea how I can find out whether if it is to be re-shown or if it’s avaialable to download?

    Hi Marina
    I think that the people who ran the Casa Antonio moved to a new, and totally different, place a few blocks away. If I´m right it is either just off the Plaza del Cordón or the next side street along.
