A look back at George Michael’s extraordinary career.
This excellent retrospective of the late singer-songwriter’s career, co-directed by George himself, includes contributions from musicians he collaborated with and interviews with celebrity fans including Ricky Gervais, who wryly recalls how Wham!’s Club Tropicana reassured us that: ‘Don’t worry, you can sun tan’!
There’s a lot on George’s legal battle with his record label and on the loss of his Brazilian partner, Anselmo, to AIDS.
Most of all, though, it’s a celebration of a prodigiously talented musician who could hold his own performing with the likes of Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder.
The 2008 concert George Michael: Live in London follows at 10.50pm.
