OB on the telly


Back in January a Catalan TV reporter came to film OB with a view to making a short documentary about her. Aware of the fickle nature of television I didn’t think anything would come of it despite the chap driving off with five hours of material.

Readers in Spain should tune into the ‘Thalassa’ on Catalan TV’s Canal 33 at 21:55 on Friday 9th. The OB documentary is titled Els horitzons d'en Ben (The horizons of Ben) and lasts about 20 minutes.

Quite frankly I don’t know what to expect, I’ve had no hand in the editing nor have I seen the final cut. I could feel some of the questions pushing me in a rather esoteric direction and I wonder if I might be portrayed as a sort of Byronesque beach bum. We shall see.

At least there should be plenty of good footage of OB sailing, which I will link to or post here when I get a copy of the film—if it’s not too embarrassing.

Golly - 20 minutes of fame. Even Warhol only wanted 15.
Congratulations!

I'm amazed Dale, that you can get Thalassa in Australia. The program is in Catalan but I think the images should be good.

Well done Ben - that sounds like good fun. Good luck in getting some footage you can post. I'm looking forward to it!

Felicitats Ben i família.

Encara no ha acabat el reportatge i ja m'he emocionat, imaginat que fins i tot se m'ha escapat un - si jo el coneixo -

Dos referents per a mi junts, el programa thalassa i ara tu.

Un gran pas per els aficionats a la construcció amateur catalans

Salut

Ei, Ben!

A la Marta i a mi ens ha agradat molt el reportatge! I hem recordat la navegada per la Costa Brava de la Setmana Santa passada. A veure si ho repetim!

Suposo que a partir de demà el reportatge ja es podrà veure a través del "3 a la carta" de TV3. Ho dic per als qui se l'hagin perdut.

Una abraçada!

Hola Ben! M'ha encantat el reportatge: personal, intim, sincer... Moltes felicitats! i pel Joan Anton també, clar!
Vaig sopar amb uns amics i el vem veure, s'em va ajuntar l'emoció de veure't i sentir-te tal com ets amb l'orgull de conèixer-te davant els amics. Moltes gràcies per compartir els teus amors i desitjos amb tothom. Una abraçada ben gran. Montse Granollers.
