    Leslie, you're quite right -- the additional footage provides all sorts of great insight, in particular the scene of the two of them on the bench in London with Danny holding the umbrella: Basia for what she says in her usual manner, and Danny for what he *doesn't* say: averting his eyes straight ahead around the point she mentions their relationship (in her roundabout way) and the distance in his expression speak volumes. I'm sure many things good and bad transpired between them during that time that are unspoken now which I respect. Basia mentions elsewhere how personal the songs are and alludes to the difficulty in writing them (and perhaps for Danny to play them?). Funny how those few scenes and lines never made it to the New Day video...

    Who is the woman is in the car that is waiting for Danny and honks the horn? I can't imagine that it's Grainne. Probably Danny's sister :-)
