Aguirre, The Wrath Of Candleford

Exciting news from the BBC. Werner Herzog has been persuaded to direct a forthcoming episode of twee bucolic period drama Lark Rise To Candleford. This follows the unprecedented global success of the scene where the peasant sprawled in the drainage ditch recites Captain Beefheart’s Old Fart At Play.

Herzog is currently working on the screenplay for his episode, which is likely to feature either a conquistador and a gang of howler monkeys laying waste to Dorcas Lane’s Candleford post office, and/or an attempt by a deranged impresario to build an opera house in the squalid village of Lark Rise.
