GBA 285 - Wild Goose Road Trips, 1969
25 Jan 2017 @ 10:38 am

GBA 285 is a special episode of Getting Better Acquainted. It's two parts monologue and one part interview as my dad tells the story of two road trips he made across America in 1969 to film in American coal mines on behalf of the British Coal Board. We get better acquainted with him and the places and people he met. This is an edited version of some recordings I made with him before GBA had even started, so it doesn't fit the usual format. It all feels like an slightly absurd and possibly a touch melancholic comedy, perhaps directed by The Cohen Brothers or Wes Anderson, and one day I hope to make a film or book about it. You can get even better acquainted with my dad by listening to the episodes he has been on previously: https://soundcloud.com/gettingbetteracquainted/sets/the-dad-episodes We mention: Francis Gyson: http://www.bfi.org.uk/films-tv-people/4ce2b9ef24bf0 Coal Board: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Coal_Board Paul Rotha: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Rotha Donald Alexander: http://www.screenonline.org.uk/people/id/1144929/ Mustang: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Mustang The Beatles: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beatles Cary Grant: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cary_Grant Moon Landing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_landing Mining Review: http://www.screenonline.org.uk/film/id/894075/ Around the World in 80 Days: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Around_the_World_in_80_Days_(1956_film) Patrick: https://soundcloud.com/gettingbetteracquainted/gba-109-patrick June: https://soundcloud.com/gettingbetteracquainted/sets/the-mum-episodes-1 Sheila: https://soundcloud.com/gettingbetteracquainted/gba-117-sheila Help more people get better acquainted.
