  1. This was recorded and broadcast by LWT, not the BBC. It was not a great show. These “celebrity” audience shows always have a huge “cringe” factor. The comedy moments like her dress being cut or the awful “slave to the rhythm” section with DSB in a very unflatering cat suit were awful. Even at the time the whole production was very dated. If they had just let DSB perform for a audience of fans, without all the nonsense (like the BBC did on “Viva Diva”) it could have been great!
