The Man-Ape

ape Jett and I had the pleasure earlier today of interviewing the performer responsible for one of the most archetypal images in cinema: Dan Richter, the Man-Ape in Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey'.  Over forty years have passed since he threw that bone in the air, but time has not dimmed Dan's willingness to talk about this magnificent film.  He even goes to the trouble of explaining what he thinks it's all about.  I have been passionate about '2001' since my Dad first encouraged me to watch it on BBC2 on a Saturday afternoon ; it was a strange and beautiful experience to talk to the man who created an indelible vision in a transcendent piece of cinema.  Have a listen - you'll enjoy it.
