Thanks for flagging that up, Malcolm.
Really enjoyed the programme today. Great to see rare stuff, all in excellent quality.
Yes, it was most enjoyable. I hadn't seen the 'Tonight' interview before, in which Bing's comments proved somewhat ironic considering his death was just a few days away.
I've noticed this before, but Bing seemed so much more 'alive' during his second Parkinson interview in comparison to the first 3 years earlier.
I think the narrator, Sylvia Sims, might be a fan as I once heard her refer to Bing as 'the divine Bing!'
I have now caught up with it. A very good selection of interviews for the BBC, 1960s and 1970s. I don't remember seeing that with Vincent Hanna in the bar of the Palladium. Bing with muffler and cloth cap.
Whilst I have seen the one about the bear and Carole Lombard before I hope that the part about beating the bear over the head was not the literal truth.
