Tomorrow evening, Thursday 18th April 2013, 9:30pm – 10:30pm, The South Bank Show on Sky Arts 1 profiles Tim!

Melvyn Bragg talks to Tim about his career, his love of language, rhymes, satire and exploring taboos. There will be live footage of Tim performing at the Royal Albert Hall with the fabulous Heritage Orchestra and from the Coronet gig in London last year.

The programme traces quite a bit of Tim’s early life in Australia, his childhood, education, early career and eventual decision to move to the UK. Tim’s brother Dan gets to spill some Minchin beans and you’ll even see some family photos.

In the studio Tim performs ‘When I Grow Up’ from Matilda The Musical and talks about writing the music and lyrics for the show. Director Matthew Warchus and writer Dennis Kelly are interviewed about working with him on the project.

You’ll find more details about the show and three taster clips, including one with Tim talking about controversy and another about Matilda The Musical on the Sky Arts website here.

The programme will be repeated on Thursday 18th April at 12:45am, Sky Arts 1 and on Sunday 21st April at 1:05am, Sky Arts 1.

Recently discovered your material, I greatly enjoy it. It is a shame you aren’t doing any USA gigs at the moment.

As someone that enjoyed Matilda in his childhood and as someone that thoroughly enjoys the drama aspects of Jesus Christ Superstar, I can say (perfectly honestly) that I would eagerly buy a ticket to each of your performances should they come to my area. (Oklahoma, USA)

Well, enough banal chatter.

Thank you for sharing your brilliance.

Don’t have Sky. Sad to be missing this. Is there any other way of seeing this?

Hi, I really want to see this but don’t have Sky. Are the times and dates for Australia? Is it going to be on youtube or is there any other way to see it?
I’m a bit desperate…..
