23.04.10


BBC 4 TV.  Friday 30 April 2010.  21.00 hrs.  South African musician Hugh Masekela celebrates his 70th birthday and reflects on his career in performance and interview, from first picking up a trumpet in the 50s through the apartheid years, exile and stardom in America, his return to South Africa on Nelson Mandela's release, and concluding with his vision of the future for his country.

The programme also features performances from his 70th birthday concert at the Barbican in London in December 2009, where he was joined by the London Symphony Orchestra, their Choir and guest South African singers.

Why might this be of particular interest to the Ukrainian community in this country I hear you ask?  Well, just look out for a familiar face in the St Luke's Community Choir's basses...
