Sir Michael Parkinson closes the current series of 'My Favourite Things' with a programme dedicated to forgotten masters. Among them Vic Damone, Carmen McRae, Jimmy Rushing, Blossom Dearie, Bobby Darin & Lena Horne. He also features the songwriter Harry Woods, who wrote the perennial and permanently cheerful songs, 'When the Red Red Robin' and 'I'm Looking Over a Four Leafed Clover', but also composed songs of great sensitivity including 'Try A Little Tenderness', which became a huge hit for Bing Crosby.
