Living Famously: Rudolph Nureyev

Living Famously: Rudolph Nureyev, ABC, 7.30pm Saturday

Who would have thought a documentary about a ballet dancer could be so damn interesting, even for viewers who are not ballet tragics? <a href= target=_blank>more</a>

I won't kid you - the Nureyev section is very brief:

Supper with the Pope, canapes with Dali, lunch with Nureyev
From The Observer, Timothy Garton Ash, Frank McCourt, Lynn Barber, Piers Morgan and Dylan Jones remember the most memorable meals of their lives.

Lynn Barber

The writer recalls lunch with Nureyev, canapés with Dalí and claret with Ronay

I remember interviewing Salvador Dalí at his suite in the Hotel Meurice and eating my way steadily through a pyramid of marrons glacés that was on the side table next to me and, when that was finished, moving to the opposite end of the sofa to eat the pyramid on the other side. Dali was quite impressed, though he said he himself only ate 'food with faces' which meant fish and ortolans.

I remember lunching with Rudolf Nureyev under a vine trellis on an island in an Italian lake and him scribbling on all the paper napkins to illustrate how a seawater desalination system worked.
