The Kate Bush Story: Run­ning Up That Hill 11pm, BBC Four

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - Tv And Radio -

Are­peat for this fine (if too-short) 2014 por­trait, cov­er­ing Bush’s ca­reer from the ethe­real teen of “The Man With The Child In His Eyes,” to the ethe­real wo­man of 2011’s 50 Words For Snow al­bum. The lack of nar­ra­tor adds to the film; in­stead of be­ing led, we fol­low Bush’s path through archive in­ter­views and per­for­mances, and the words of con­trib­u­tors who all seem gen­uine about how much her mu­sic has touched them, in­clud­ing col­lab­o­ra­tors like Peter Gabriel and David Gil­mour, and spir­i­tual descen­dants like Natasha Khan (Bat For Lashes) and An­nie Clark (St. Vin­cent). Else­where come Tricky, Neil Gaiman and Steve Coogan, whose le­gendary Alan Par­tridge Bush med­ley is given due re­spect. (Kate is a fan.) It’s fol­lowed by the com­pi­la­tion Kate Bush At The BBC (12 mid­night).
