"it was a great thrill to run into this video posted via Ed Ross. when I published his name has not appeared so I write it now. it was exciting because I have had the great honor to practice with Radha, the first time 5 summers ago. I can tell you that this woman embodies the practice and tradition, in her Shala seems that time has stopped. With her, I understood what it means just one breath in one movement, the vinyasa, and without using words because 5 years ago I could barely speak and understand English and no one there spoke Italian with me she has only ever used her hands on me, no verbal instruction, if I can stay inside the vinyasa I owe it to her, and the funny thing is that she and I are really spoken only a few times. Last summer I also felt her healing touch on me. more than her body moving in the shala I felt the presence of her spirit, that I can not express it in words. so she is still spreading love and devotion to the practise, in such humble way".

Derek Ireland and Radha in a breakfast TV spot for what looks like the UK's TVAM.
This seems to be a very early introduction to Ashtanga in the UK, perhaps the first time it was seen there on TV.
I went hitchhiking for a few years from '83 so would have missed this otherwise who knows....
To put it in perspective, TVAM's regular yoga 'instructor' was 'Mad Lizzie' Web
UPDATE (what already?)
My friend Oscar ( I presented my first workshop at Oscar's beautiful studio in Leon in December) has just pointed out that the same Youtube channel has this early Spanish TV slot with Tomas Zorzo. Thomas is giving a workshop at Oscar's studio from April 12th, been hearing great hints about Thomas and the breath.
