Definitely Dusty – 23 April 2021 – 23/4/2021 – Friday – BBC Four

Documentary looking at the life and work of soul and pop diva Dusty Springfield, singer of such classics as You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me and Son of a Preacher Man, who was equally famous for her trademark panda eyes and blonde beehive.

Using archive footage and interviews shot in the UK and the US, it charts her progress from plain Catholic schoolgirl to glamorous star and ventures behind the extravagant image to reveal a complex and vulnerable character.

Featuring interviews with fellow musicians from a career spanning four decades, including Elton John, Burt Bacharach, Neil Tennant, Lulu and Martha Reeves.

Dusty’s protective inner circle of friends have never spoken about her on camera before. Pat Rhodes, Dusty’s personal secretary for her entire solo career, her manager Vicky Wickham, ardent fan-turned-backing singer Simon Bell and others talk about the highs and lows of the woman they knew and loved.
