Singer Presents Burt Bacharach, Tom Jones, Barbra Streisand

Post by deanotreorchy »

I am desperate for some assistance in finding the copy of a programme made in 1971 of the Burt Bacharach Show with Tom Jones, Rudolph Nureyev and Barbra Streisand. It won two Emmys. Although I'm a fan of all the above, my main reason for wanting a copy of this programme is that it features the Treorchy Male Choir of Wales. They are featured in an old pub scene with Tom and Burt by the piano. I'm the Archivist for the Treorchy Male Choir and this is one of the few programmes we don't have filed in our massive collection. Can anyone help me please? We would happily purchase a dvd copy if someone has it? It doesn't matter what Region, just so we can have a copy - you really would be doing us a massive service. Thanks in advance for any help or advice you can give. Dean Powell

Hi,
The programme you want is not available commercially BUT you get a copy on a U.S. site:

http://www.ioffer.com/

This is reather like eBay but you can buy rather than bid and you can often use PayPal for payment. Go to the site and in their search engine enter Burt Bacharach and in the categories menu click on Movies & Television and there you go. You should find it. Funnily enough I bought a copy of this a couple of weeks ago and from the same seller (user name: harpocleo) and he was very quick sending it. You will probably need to ask for a postage cost to the UK but it was reasonable. The quality is not great but watchable as this is probably a DVD copied off a video from the TV BUT you will never get it otherwise.

Hope this helps and good luck.

Barry
