The Divine Miss M comes to Radio 2! Bette Midler is renowned for her incomparable wit and brash sense of style. And this special programme features both. With Bette's favourite music interspersed with her unique observations and stories about what those songs mean to her, this specially recorded show proves The Divine Miss M is your best Bette for Christmas on Radio 2.

Bette features tracks from Perry Como, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald, and a few from Bette's own catalogue including The Wind Beneath My Wings, Hello In There and a seasonal version of From A Distance.

Even though we may not be able to see her wheelchair and mermaid tail, The Best Bette delivers a very special dose of "divinity".
(Revised repeat. Produced by Malcolm Prince).
