TV special brings Christmas cheer from WELLER's Woking home...
Paul Weller is to give a tour of his Woking home and record collection when the TV version of Radio 1’s All Back To Mine programme is screened next month.
The 30-minute Christmas special, which will be broadcast on Channel 4 on December 21, features Weller leafing through and playing his favourite records and chatting about the memories connected with each song.
Radio 1 broadcast the first All Back To Mine – an ‘at home’ special with NOEL GALLAGHER – on Christmas Day last year and it has since featured FATBOY SLIM, THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS and Weller. The new show is directed by award-winning BLUR and PULP video-maker PEDRO ROMANYI.
Producer and presenter SEAN ROWLEY, who worked on the Radio 1 shows, told NME: “It’s a broadcastable pilot and we should have a series next year. The show works because we capture the person enthusing about the music they love. That’s the only criteria for the guests – they have to be obsessed with music and excited by the magic of records.” related news

If the series gets the go-ahead, Rowley said Noel Gallagher is keen to appear in one of the programmes.
