Man with the Golden Voice - BBC Documentary

What did you think of the programme?
Did you prefer it to the Odeon documentary "A Portrait of?
Did you tape it?
Would you watch it again?

Hi--I thought the programme was brilliant. I could not say I prefer it to "APortrait of"-they are both great.

Yes I did tape it, and yes I have watched it many times. I was lucky enough to see it on BBC4 last year.

Hello all. Yes I am the same as Mariana44. All the Matt DVD releases and the" Man With The Golden Voice" are top notch, any release by our Matt is top notch. But then again we would say that wouldn't we, as we are Matts #1 fan's on here. (I have yet to buy "Matt at the Movies") I will wait until it is released in the shop's. "Go Go with Matt Monro" sound's awesome.
I had already seen the BBC documentary, but I watched it all the way through again, and I still felt edgy, nervous and excited (know what I mean) watching it again.

Hi Michele

After watching the new release "Matt At The BBC", I was wondering whether there was any chance of "The Man With the Golden Voice" being released on DVD. This has possibly been my favourite of the shows/productions made about Matt and it would be great to have it in DVD format. Maybe one for the in-tray...Many thanks.

Shame it won't be available on IPlayer :( and I was mistaken thinking I had BBC4! I was relying on Iplayer to have it available, ah well perhaps one day it can get a DVD release.

I'm afraid Josh, it's unlikely to get issued on DVD due to some complex licencing problems.

It won't be available on Iplayer for the same reason and because it was made by an independant production company not the BBC.

However the BBC do repeat it regularly - If you can receive Freeview you should be able to be able to get BBC 4.

Have a search on youtube - i'm sure it's feature there somewhere.

Well after finally managing to watch it (one way or another!) I can safeley say it was well worth the wait. A superbly produced documentary and a fine tribute to the talented Matt Monro. I would have preferred more coverage on the music but it's a great look at the man's life and well worth a viewing or three!
This and A Portrait of are must see for fans as they provide a nice introduction to Matt. I felt the highlight of this documentary however was towards the ending with the discussion of Matt's legacy, especially the interview with Max Monro (that was a great idea, odd though as there was no contribution from Matt Jnr?) The documentary looked very classy and professional and I'm sure encouraged alot of people who watched it last night to go out and get some Monro magic, a big well done to all involved.

Of coure the dream would be to have a documentary series that lasted ohhh 9 or 10 hours lol focusing on each little aspect of Matt's life eg pt1 the early years etc that would be sensational! Though for now Golden Voice and Portrait of do a fine job of telling the story of Matt Monro.
