I spoke to the song's producer Andrew Powell about its creation and to super-fan Beth Orton about how, despite the 'whimsy' tag, Bush was as punk as Patti Smith.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/what-to-listen-to/wuthering-heights-40-kate-bush-reinvented-modern-pop/#comments 
How Coldplay became the world’s comfort blanket.

@mikechristieuk Thanks Mike. Looking forward to watching it again this eve.
I had chat with director of tonight’s ace Sky Arts doc on Hansa Studios in Berlin, where Bowie, Iggy, U2 recorded. Great archive and interviews with likes of Tony Visconti, Michael Stipe, Flood, Martin Gore and - in show-stealing turn - Marillion’s Fish. https://t.co/KYkvLnNa5G https://t.co/4Px9lhr7nF
