Twentieth-Century Troubadour

Saturday 19 November 2005 16:30-17:00 (Radio 4 FM)


A celebration of the extraordinary talent of Belgian singer Jacques Brel. His songs have been covered by David Bowie, Frank Sinatra and Shirley Bassey, but Brel's own work is rarely heard here. Philip Sweeney finds out why the British don't like chanson, and why the Belgians just don't care.
