The World According to Kenny Everett (ITV 13 Dec 2015)

Published

on

AIRDATE: Sunday 13th December 2015 at 10.00pm on ITV

This one-hour special takes an in-depth look at the pioneering DJ and comic genius Kenny Everett, including classic moments from his hugely successful TV career and rare and revealing personal archive and contributions from those closest to him. His sister Cate recalls an idyllic childhood in Liverpool with her brother and offers a unique insight into his charismatic yet complex character.

He may have been a whirlwind of self-confidence on TV but in private he was a very shy and intelligent man. Some famous names share their stories about him and how he set the nation laughing through characters such as Cupid Stunt, Captain Kremmen, Sid Snot and Marcel Wave. They include Chris Tarrant, Barry Cryer, Paul Gambaccini, Dave Cash, and close friends like Cleo Rocos, Roger Taylor – who credits Kenny with turning Bohemian Rhapsody into a hit – and Steve Norman from Spandau Ballet.

A groundbreaking radio DJ, Kenny first hit the TV screens in 1978 on Thames and then moved to the BBC in 1981. With The Kenny Everett Show’s popularity reaching great heights, the world’s biggest stars – including Rod Stewart, Kate Bush and David Bowie – all clambered to appear alongside Kenny and were only too happy to make fools of themselves in his madcap sketches. Billy Connolly was a regular on those shows and recalls some chaotic and hilarious times in the studio. This is a tribute to a comedy genius whose influence still resonates with younger entertainers.

Bancroft sarah parish episode 1

Airing over four consecutive nights Bancroft is a new thriller for ITV starring Sarah Parish as Det. Superintendent Elizabeth Bancroft. The series premieres on Monday 11 December at 9.00pm on ITV.

The formidable Det. Superintendent Elizabeth Bancroft is leading the charge against the violent Kamara gang. Meanwhile, DS Katherine Stevens is given a cold murder case. In 1990, Laura Fraser was stabbed 18 times in frenzied attack at home. As Elizabeth and Katherine’s paths cross for the first time, Katherine finds that there’s more to the Fraser case than it seems – and Elizabeth has some secrets in her past which may prove difficult to hide.

Linus Roache (Vikings, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit) makes his return to British television. Linus plays Tim Fraser who is haunted by an unsolved crime. He has also been running from his past but his hidden shame can’t stay buried forever. Produced by Phil Collinson (Midwinter of the Spirit, Coronation Street, Dr Who) and directed by John Hayes (Vera, Home Fires), Bancroft explores what happens when heinous crimes, long buried, come back to haunt us.

Filmed on location in and around Bolton and the North West, this new series also features Amara Karan (The Night Of, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man), Adrian Edmondson (War and Peace, Prey), Art Malik (Cold Feet, Indian Summers, Homeland), Kenneth Cranham (War and Peace, Rome), Adam Long (Happy Valley, Home Fires), Lee Boardman (The Five, Da Vinci’s Demons) and Steve Evets (One of Us, Looking for Eric).
