Celebrating: The South Bank Show
ITV3, 9pm Wed
In a six-part series, Celebrating The South bank Show starting on 10 September, ITV3, Melvyn will re-live some of his most memorable moments with the various stars and artistes.
They include the time he annoyed Laurence Olivier during his interview, how he got drunk with Francis bacon and the memory of Paul McCartney trying to make a song out of the words ‘Melvyn Bragg’.
There’s also the wet afternoon in Hull when Melvyn and Philip Larkin were thrown out of the station cafe by police and guard dogs.
And of course there were the egos, including Elizabeth Taylor who dispensed orders to the crew with regard to camera angles and lighting in order that she look as beautiful as possible while facing Melvyn Bragg’s probing.
Programme Two – 1982 to 1987 (series 6 to 10)
This episode looks at actors and directors and includes the titan of the stage and screen and reputedly Britain’s greatest actor Laurence Olivier. Plus the silent screen star Lillian Gish; Ian McKellen, John Cleese, Gene Hackman, Jack Lemmon, Alec Guinness, David Lean and Steven Spielberg.
This episode also looks at a range of music programmes which play such a large part of The South Bank Show including: revisiting Paul McCartney (making his musical film Give My Regards To Broad Street), Pete Townshend and Andrew Lloyd Webber. It also features the classic South Bank Show when both artist Francis Bacon and Melvyn Bragg were alcohol fuelled.
