Frank Sinatra Night on BBC2 on April 1st.

Post by pmp »

BBC2 are having a Frank Sinatra night next Saturday. They are showing:

Frank Sinatra: A Man and His Music + Ella + Jobim - one of the best TV music specials ever made, in my opinion. First time I've seen it on a major UK channel like this.

Sinatra at the Royal Festival Hall, 1970. The BBC have shown this before, but they normally use an alternate edit, with a song included that isn't on the DVD (and I think they omit one song from the DVD!)

The Voice of the Century. Documentary.

High Society film.

The night is rounded off with a Talking Pictures episode dedicated to Bing Crosby.

Accused of being "a nerd in his 20s." I wish.
