Night Flight was a variety television show that originated on cable TV network USA Network. It aired from 1981 to 1988. Episodes originally lasted four hours each, and aired in the late-night programming block. The final original broadcast of Night Flight aired December 30, 1988. It included a mix of mainstream and alternative music videos, artist interviews, B movies, documentaries, short films, stand up comedy, cartoons, and more.
In November 1985, Kate Bush was interviewed for the programme Night Flight during a promotional trip to the USA. While the segment in the actual broadcast has become hard to find, the uncut, unedited version of the interview has become a classic among Kate Bush fans for the inane questions by the uninformed interviewer. After the interview, Kate is further exploited by the studio crew, who pressure her into delivering a series of advertising ‘spots’ for a number of television programmes.
