Was it a repeat of a VERY long (but interesting) profile of RVW that was on during the Christmas holiday a couple of years ago?
I remember watching it at then 9 a.m in my dressing gown on either Boxing day or NYD and being still thus attired when the programme finished about 3 hours later.
That's the Tony Palmer film, O Thou Transcendent

I'm a big RVW symphony fan - 5th is probably favourite. And my choir is doing the Sea Symphony this term
hmmm think Sea Symph could well be marmite... (which I don't eat)
Probably makes a difference that I'm a singer - sang it at the Proms in 2005 - that was fun!
Dulcet - you like neither Marmite nor RVW?
Tenor Viol - I was at the 2005 Prom performance
I am jealous of you singing it this term, although I've done it a couple of times in the past. I'm not ashamed to admit to having shed a tear during the last couple of pages when we sang it last summer.

I find 6 a bit hard going, tbh.
Even the really dirty saxophone solo?
