I might go, 2014 is a bit far off for me at the moment. And besides, Glasgow is no0t that far from me. :D

Sadly find it impossible to watch The Late Late Show. The host is a complete muppet.

This site tends to show RTE made programs from the day after airing.

Channel 4 used to show a repeat of The Late Late Show on a saturday but I think they've stopped.

Bad interview. Guy asked Terry was he finished with writing and also asked him if he was afraid of death. Surely interviewers are supposed to do a little research or have minions to do it for them :roll:
