Sue Barker introduces coverage of the International Women's Open, where it's semi-finals day.


From next year Eastbourne will also feature a men's tournament, so the women will have to share the spotlight. Last year, it shone on the recently-retired Justine Henin, who breezed through her semi-final against Marion Bartoli. However, French player Bartoli got her revenge less than a fortnight later, shocking the world No. 1 in the last four at Wimbledon.




BBC FOUR Friday 20 June 2008
Legends – Quincy Jones: The Many Lives Of Q Ep 2/2
Friday 20 June
9.00-10.00pm BBC FOUR

BBC Four's celebration of the life and career of American jazz musician, composer, arranger, record producer and entrepreneur Quincy Jones concludes this evening and features a wide-ranging interview with Jones, in which he talks candidly about his life and work.


Family, friends and stars from the music and film industries also provide an insight into the man and his genius, in this two-part documentary marking his 75th year.


This second programme, From The King Of Pop To Hip Hop – 1975-2008, charts Quincy's recovery from a brain aneurism and how he went on to produce the biggest-selling album of all time: Michael Jackson's Thriller. Quincy also produced and conducted 1985's We Are The World – the American music industry's response to the Ethiopian famine. That same year he ventured into new territory, turning Hollywood producer for The Color Purple.


Quincy returned to music with the iconic 1989 album Back On The Block, cross-fertilising the talents of 66 artists including Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Patti Austin and six young rappers. The programme also looks at his remixing of the iconic British dance hit Blue Monday; his humanitarian work in Africa, for which he won an Oscar; and mentoring younger musicians.


Contributors include: Quincy himself; Lionel Richie; Phil Collins; Sir Bob Geldof; Bernard Sumner; Patti Austin; and the major players on Thriller: Rod Temperton (British songwriter), Bruce Swedien (recording engineer), Steve Lukather (guitarist) and daughter Kidada. There is also footage of Michael Jackson during the Eighties, Ella Fitzgerald and Miles Davis.
