Matt Monro: The Man With The Golden Voice

Friday, 21 October 2005 13:08

DOCUMENTARY: Matt Monro: The Man With The Golden Voice
Channel: BBC 4
Date: Saturday 22nd October 2005
Duration: 1 hour.
Neil Pearson narrates a documentary telling the story of Matt Monro, the young Londoner born Terry Parsons who became one of the world's most popular ballad singers. Contributors include Paul Gambaccini, Don Black, George Martin, John Barry and Monro's family.

It was an excellent hour-long documentary charting Monro's life and career, accompanied by archive footage, interviews with Don Black, John Barry, Sir George Martin and Monro's family.

But most of it was also accompanied by Barry's music from The Beyondness of Things & The Specialist - or was it Playing By Heart? Anyway, very moody JB, just right for the tone of the programme.

It was on the BBC's digital only channel, BBC4, but well worth a look when it appears elsewhere around the globe.
