Private EyeEdit

Does anyone know the cause of the 'falling out' with Private Eye? Did it start before, or because of, their lampoons of Miller? Bluedawe 21:54, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

National ServiceEdit

Did he do NS, and if not, why not? Possibly exempt as a medical student? Seadowns (talk) 12:43, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

He was born in 1934 and would normally have been conscripted. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 14:49, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
He seems to have studied until 1959 and worked as a civilian until 1961. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 15:18, 9 August 2019 (UTC)
He seems to have been in New York as a civilian in 1963. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 15:28, 9 August 2019 (UTC)


I see that Miller's production of Bach's St Matthew Passion is mentioned under a heading which reads "Oratorium". Did Miller specifically insist on using this form to describe the work? If so, it might be worth mentioning. Or is it just a mistake by an editor whose first language is not English? If this is the case, I propose we change the heading to "Oratorio".

As nobody has come back on this, I shall make the change I proposed. LynwoodF (talk) 10:25, 27 February 2019 (UTC)
