Who posted first?

Remembered for excellent show Clive James Goes Country back in 1995, with Mark of course.

He was seriously ill with leukaemia back in 2011.  His Sunday night shows back in the 1980s-90s when I was growing up were always great viewing.

Sorry to hear Clive James has died.   I really enjoyed "Clive James Goes Country" with MK - still have it on VHS somewhere!   RIP Clive.

His 'Postcard' series was always interesting.  Anyone my age or older will also recall Clive James on Television where he'd show amusing clips including some from the crazy Japanese game show Endurance. 

Here is Postcard From Rome which includes some classic lines:
