This sets of a series of repercussions leading ultimately to Moynihan’s decision to go against King Nidge’s orders.

Later Presents…Elvis Costello In Concert
1.25am BBC 4
Jools Holland presents a live studio performance by singer-songwriter Elvis Costello, accompanied by the Attractions, the Brodsky Quartet and a chamber-jazz septet. The set features songs from throughout his career, including his effervescent, punchy little miniatures like Pump It Up and Watching the Detectives. A man with a keen ear for pop through all its ages, Elvis never takes the easy route in terms of sound, but prefers to alchemise and experiment, and cross back and forth to the classical laboratory down the corridor. Plus, a genius sometime with lyrics – just listen to Every Day I Write The Book.
