The year 2013 was a memorable year. There was Dame Shirley Bassey’s performance in Hamburg for 50 years of Bond and later that year her incredible performance at the Oscars. A sad occasion was the passing of baroness Margaret Thatcher that year. Below also the audio of a broadcast from German radio and a short video of Dame Shirley watching tennis over the years.
