Bill Bailey is a British comedian who incoporates a lot of music into his comedy. Last year, he did three nights at the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Concert Orchestra, introducing 'classical music'. One of the night was broadcast last week.

Interestingly, he did a 5 minute section just about the theremin, and a piece called 'The Jellyfish'. It's not massively complex (or precise!) playing, but it's pretty mainstream (9pm on a Saturday night on BBC2 is mainstream, right?).

UK viewer can watch on iPlayer now until 16th May (although I guess it'll appear on torrents/YouTube? I wouldn't know how I'm afraid).

Given that there are five clips from the show on youTube already, I think it may well appear.

(Actually, it's not hard to lift stuff from iPlayer without having to crack the DRM, but I don't own the right cable to plug my computer's video out into my digital video recorder. Besides, it naughty to do that.)

PS Chris - I have been trying - unsuccessfully - to find a way of contacting you on a separate subject. Could you email me please - gordonc at theremin dot org dot uk
