Beth Orton appears on a TV programme in Australia on 1 April 2000. The programme titled Rage is a video clip programme
broadcast on ABC TV (Australia's national broadcaster) each week on Friday and Saturday night (starting time varies week to week)
and into the early hours of the next day. The Saturday night show usually has a guest programmer who chooses the playlist and introduces
some of the clips.
And Beth happens to be the guest programmer that night. The whole show usually goes for about 6 hours but the guest programmers
spots are only about 2 or 3 hours long.
4 Beth videos (She Cries Your Name, Touch Me With Your Love, Central Reservation and Stolen Car) were played along with some
other great ones.
Below is the transcript kindly prepared by Darren:
BO: Hello, this is Beth Orton and I'm gonna be picking my favourite videos for Rage. So tune in, don't touch that dial and don't drop out.
BO: So the first video I've picked is Fatboy Slim, "Praise You". I love this video, it makes me smile, it's got that amateur feel.
And it's very funny. So here it is, "Praise You".
Praise You - Fatboy Slim
Run On - Moby
Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad? - Moby
BO: So the next video I picked is Massive Attack, "Unfinished Sympathy". It's a very simple idea -- just followin' a girl walking.
One shot which is something they used in films like "Mean Streets" and "Goodfellows" and stuff like that. And it's just very simple,
very clever idea and a brilliant song. So here
it is, "Unfinished Sympathy".
Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack
Ghost Town - The Specials
BO: So, this is Stone Roses from Manchester, England doing "She Bangs The Drum". Mainly I picked this 'cause I really like the
song, to be quite honest with you, and I can't really remember what the video's like but I'm sure it's good and I'm sure you'll
enjoy it. Here it goes, "She Bangs The Drum".
She Bangs The Drums - Stone Roses
My Iron Lung - Radiohead
BO: Next up is Radiohead, "Street Spirit". I love this, not only 'cause it's got trailers in it, but I just think it's amazing. It's so
clever the way they all spin around and do all that sort of stuff. Anyway, here it is "Street Spirit".
Street Spirit - Radiohead
All Is Full Of Love - Bjork
As Tears Go By - Marianne Faithful
BO: Hello, this is Beth Orton and you're watching Raaage.
Under My Thumb - The Rolling Stones
Faded - Ben Harper
BO: This next video is The Chemical Brother's "Let Forever Be". A superbly done video... umm, what can you say. It's again,
one idea really and very well executed and I hope you enjoy it -- "Let Forever Be".
Let Forever Be - The Chemical Brothers
Kelly Watch The Stars - Air
Devil's Haircut - Beck
Whip It - Devo
Living With A Hernia - Weird Al Yankovic
