  1. This is a great archive, thank you Pieter. I loved the documentary All About Shirley it shows the class act she is. Her enjoyment with her family at their home in Sardinia, her professionalism, her frustrations and tantrums and then her performances – especially Excuse Me – FANTASTIC! – Terry.

  2. I remember I watched this super show at that time at the Geman television! There was no video recorder and I filmed parts of the show without sound! The sexy silver gown was my favourit at that time! The song “exuse me” impressed me very much and today it still one of my most favourit Bassey songs! Thanks Pieter! for this fantastic blog!

  3. Thank you Pieter. What a very entertaining, and insightful video. I never tire of watching this. I’m sure if DSB ever watches this she cringes when she sees the parts where she loses her temper…LOL. I also love the opening of the video and the lovely way that DSB sings that most beautiful song “The Summer Wind.” Thank you so very much for your hard work in sharing these great archives with us without fail.
