Image In November 1999, Neil Hannon played a cover of Weill and Brecht’s ‘Mack The Knife’ with jazz musician Courtney Pine on the Channel 4 program Music For The Millennium, hence the inclusion, on this Channel 4 Magazines CD called Sounds Of The Millennium, of a small video of Neil Hannon talking about the song. The video is part of the ‘interactive’ CD-ROM content which comes as a bonus to the 5 audio tracks.

The video is 1:25 long and features Neil explaining his choice of this song as a Millennium song. Although a more complete and edited version of the interview with extracts of versions of the songs was also broadcast on Channel 4.
