Le Document TV launches with Bogart documentary narrated by Christopher Strauli and featuring music composed and performed by Francis Macdonald

 Le Document magazine, which is co edited by Harry Pye and Chris Tosic, began 18 months ago. On the 15th of every month their subscribers are e-mailed new photos, reviews, essays, interviews and photos of cats. Another regular feature in Le Document is the Movie Profiles which are written by Jo Mama. Filmmaker Gordon Beswick has just completed a video version of Jo's tribute to Humphrey Bogart. Jo's text is read by the actor Christopher Strauli. The film's soundtrack was composed and performed by Francis Macdonald (who is the drummer of Teenage Fanclub and has been nominated for a BAFTA  for his sublime, minimalist  classical compositions.)

The film features Bogart inspired artworks by a plethora of the usual suspects...
