Is that the program where the guy talks about his upcoming emotional and joyous reunion with Fapy, only to be met with relative indifference?

No it's the one that starts of with a discussion of the photo below and an interview with Mike Zwerin who wrote "Swing under the Nazis". It ends with Elios Ferre saying there is no such thing as gypsy jazz; it is simply a label that is now applied.

Yes. The one you are talking about is quite different. That's the one where Fapy says he learned to play like Django in an hour!!!

This one concentrates on how Django survived during the war. It has an interview with the God of the guitar, Bert Weedon, who says on one occasion when he was with them (for a broadcast in the UK) Steph was reading a document to Django and suddenly Django realises Steph is making most of it up and goes raving mad.
