The Frank Si­na­tra Story Chan­nel 5, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Frank Si­na­tra was such an in­flu­en­tial fig­ure in the history of pop­u­lar mu­sic, that one of his many nick­names was sim­ply ‘The Voice’. So, it’s un­sur­pris­ing that the cen­te­nary of his birth this month has been marked with a num­ber of trib­utes, in­clud­ing his own day on Chan­nel 5. This doc­u­men­tary looks at his re­mark­able ca­reer from a very Bri­tish per­spec­tive. It points out that while Si­na­tra was be­ing mar­keted to the Amer­i­can pub­lic, UK mu­sic fans could ini­tially only won­der about this new crooner who was whip­ping up such ma­nia across the At­lantic.
