Jonathan Ross concludes his profile of the singer-turned-film-producer, focusing on the Las Vegas years when he was feted by the likes of Sammy Davis Jr, Liza Minnelli and Tony Bennett before returning to Britain and virtual anonymity in the 1990s. A special edition of "Friday Night Is Music Night" follows.
Michael Ball heads a tribute to singer Anthony Newley, with the BBC Concert
Orchestra directed by Callum McLeod, together with violinist Cynthia Fleming and Capital Voices. Special guests include Laura Michelle Kelly, Jason Pennycooke, Newley's writing partner Leslie Bricusse and Anna Quayle, who recreates her Tony-winning performance from Stop the World - I Want to Get Off.
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
