Sings Bacharach and David! – 21 May 2021 – 21/5/2021 – Friday – BBC Four

The BBC have raided their remarkable archive once more to reveal evocative performances from Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s astonishing songbook. Love songs from the famous songwriting duo were a familiar feature of 60s and 70s BBC entertainment programmes such as Dusty, Cilla and The Cliff Richard Show, but there are some surprises unearthed here too.

Highlights include Sandie Shaw singing Always Something There to Remind Me, Aretha Franklin performing I Say a Little Prayer, Dusty Springfield’s Wishin’ and Hopin’, The Stranglers’ rendition of Walk on By on Top of the Pops, The Carpenters in concert performing (They Long to Be) Close to You and Burt Bacharach revisiting his classic Kentucky Bluebird with Rufus Wainwright on Later…with Jools Holland.
