The last of four programmes My Kinda Life
Is Cliff Richard too good to be true? How has he survived for over 20 years as the golden boy of pop and still remained unscathed?
In this final programme we look at the fans, the fame and the fortune that go to make up a superstar, and aim to catch the man behind the image. With music from his recent sell-out tours and special surprise footage shot at his 40th birthday last year, Cliff is seen at his rock 'n' rolling best. Along with comments from Olivia Newton-John and The Shadows, Cliff himself talks freely about his life, his loves, temptations and beliefs. As he sings in the title track: ' It's my kinda life and I like it'.
