BBC Documentary about PKD

Came across a 1994 documentary about PKD on Google Video.

It's made by the BBC's 'Arena' documentary team.

Includes contributions from Terry Gilliam, PKDs family, PKDs friends and various authors. Also PKD readings by Greg Proops (of all people!) and various clips from Blade Runner and Total Recall (the only two PKD-based films made at that time)

I haven't read much about PKD's personal life, so this was quite an eye-opener for me. Well worth an hour of your time.

Link. (Approx 55 mins).

This is an excellent documentary! I watched it a few times over the summer!

I've also emailed the PKD estate about trying to get BBC to release it on DVD!
