Legends -- Val Doonican Rocks
Sunday 8 April 2007
Pauline McLynn narrates an affectionate portrait of popular Irish entertainer Val Doonican,
as famous for his props such as cardigans and rocking chair as for his easy-listening style.
From 1964-1986 he led the BBC1 ratings, his particular brand of laid-back entertainment
surviving the revolutionary 60s, IRA campaigns and a variety of changing musical styles.
His hits included Walk Tall and The Special Years, as well as a number of comic 'Oirish' songs.
At the age of 80, Val still performs, but the sweaters and his faithful rocking chair are
nowhere to be seen.
Includes interviews with Rolf Harris, John Williams, Gerry Anderson and Gloria Hunniford.
