Faulks's vision is that of the individual caught up in the world's most traumatic events while making a bid for happiness. Joining him in this intense and personal film is actress Cate Blanchett who is in the middle of making the movie version of his acclaimed novel Charlotte Gray. Presented by Kirsty Wark. See Choice. Director Sam Hobkinson ; Series editor Basil Comely (S) (W)
The second in an eight-part series chronicling the evolution of popular music over the last century.
Stardust. This week's programme tells the story of the momentous meeting of the voice of Bing Crosby and the trumpet of Louis Armstrong. Up until then, singers had merely been part of big jazz bands rather than stars in their own right. Crosby changed that, becoming the first true pop star of the recording era, and it was not long before Frank Sinatra was generating the kind of fan hysteria that today's bands would die for. A huge debt was due to Armstrong, whose free-flowing singing style paved the way for the likes of Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. Narrator Clive Owen. See Choice.
