“Absorbing...” -The Times
“This pleasing documentary...” -The Radio Times
“The best things in this show have all been on other programmes, but that is the nature of it. And Ramirez turns it into something coherent and interesting that says something about the man himself, his timelessness, and about his TV career…” -The Guardian
