But a really striking music documentary will force a viewer to engage with something previously unconsidered, open up new trails to follow. This feels too long, too peripheral and too indulgent to really preach to anyone but the choir. Parker and his recently reformed band are likeable company, making agreeable music with the greatest of earnestness. But do we really need to hear about their present lives as librarians, jobbing session musicians and teachers? Is this really enough to hold the attention of the uninitiated? Probably not.
JRC Global Buffet
There's certainly a lot of choice at this huge buffet restaurant in Croydon - there are more than 300 different dishes on offer, covering global cuisines from India and Italy to Brazil, Britain, Malaysia and Mexico. There's China, France, the USA, Japan, Spain and Thailand too, should you need them. There are ten live cooking stations here, so diners can watch the chefs at work as they steam dim sum, chop sushi, bake naans and grill butter scallops on the teppanyaki - a hot plate used widely in Japan. Elsewhere, visitors can tuck into pizzas, pasta, burgers, BBQ baby-back ribs, Malay chicken curries, seafood paella and crispy Hong Kong noodles, amongst other global staples.
