Just caught up with this. Great song and performance, of course. BUT does Tim really have to do such a horrible show? Smarmy yes, as well as trivial and self-serving (Chris Evans). Am I the only one who thought Tim looked really ill at ease? Is there a PR guru making this happen? Not a happy watch, for me….

Thank you lovely people who uploaded it to You tube :)

I caught the show (first time I’ve ever watched The One Show, funnily enough ;) ), and it was quite remarkable. I don’t know if it was Tim who wrote this or not, but whoever it was I’d like to say well-done to the one that did, as it’s quite an evocative song (it’s been a long while since I’ve read the book, so I don’t know if the words were taken ad verbatim from the book). It perfectly encapsulates the mindset of a child thinking on when they will be a grown up. I remember these thoughts. And, of course, Tim’s performance was superb. The cadence of his voice was well suited to the song. For that reason I’d like to add my voice to the list of people who wish for this performance to be uploaded to Youtube!

WHY CAN’T I WATCH IT!!! Does anyone know why its not letting me listen to it in Australia? If i don’t get to watch it in the next couple of days, i will be depressed.

Tim looked very svelte. Either he’s been working out or has given up cheese.. or possibly both. Lovely viewing!

Claire on 13th of May 2012

Great interview. However, Chris Evans…never ever cut Tim Minchin off when he is speaking!!

Gin on 12th of May 2012

We can’t get this in the Southern hemisphere ….. anyone know how can we see it?

Phil Hibberd on 12th of May 2012

Tim was great – made the others look smarmy and insincere. Oh wait….

Is there any way to watch this outside of the U.K.? I may or may not be running a youtube search every hour, on the hour, to see if it’s been uploaded.

Lori on 12th of May 2012

We’re in Australia. Is there any way we can watch BBC IPlayer? I am happy to pay for a subscription to a service or provider, if it means we can watch our dear Tim.
