Dusty Springfield at the BBC – 17 December 2020 – 17/12/2020 – Thursday – BBC Four

A selection of Dusty Springfield’s performances at the BBC from 1961 to 1995. Dusty was one of Britain’s great pop divas, guaranteed to give us a big melody in songs soaring with drama and yearning.

The clips show Dusty’s versatility as an artist and performer and include songs from her folk beginnings with The Springfields; the melodrama of You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me; Dusty’s homage to Motown with Heatwave and Nowhere to Run; the Jacques Brel song If You Go Away; the Bacharach and David tune The Look of Love; and Dusty’s collaboration with Pet Shop Boys in the late 1980s.

There are also some great duets from Dusty’s career with Tom Jones and Mel Torme.
