Re: Things to watch this week

Here in the UK I see that the Sky Arts Channel is repeating Discovering: Bing Crosby tomorrow (23rd December) at 6.00pm. I've only recently gained access to Sky Arts via an upgraded Wi-Fi/TV package so I haven't seen this before. They are also showing Happy Holidays With Bing and Frank at 8.30am on Christmas Eve.

The time you give, Jeremy, is that stated in Radio Times, but my updated electronic listing gives 8:45am. It's  probably best to set recorder (if you do not already have the recording) to 8:30 and allow safety margin at both ends!

Jeremy, I  think the shows are available on demand too so download them now?

Re: Things to watch this week

Thank you, gentlemen...

I've got Happy Holidays With Bing and Frank on volume two of the BCE Television Specials DVD release. I'll make sure I keep an eye on the listings for the Discovering: programme. I've seen a few of these Discovering: profiles of Hollywood stars and they're usually quite entertaining but basically cut-and-paste efforts. 

Apologies for obscuring your announcement about the Giddins/Friedwald interview, Malcolm. Is that available on demand..?

Haven't heard whether the Zoom meeting is available for us to see. Let's hope so.

Re: Things to watch this week

If you enjoyed the Zoom event hosted by Will Friedwald last week, here's another opportunity to see Will and Gary discuss Crosby and both of the books Gary's written about Bing. This interview is from last January.https://youtu.be/3NrT6BBf2N4
