The Frank Sinatra Story Channel 5, 9pm
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.
