This series, first broadcast in the Spring of 2001, tells the story of the husband and wife song-writing team of Alan and Marilyn Bergman.
Featuring a specially recorded in-depth interview with the lyricists, 'Keep the Music Playing' includes contributions from Johnny Mathis, film director Norman Jewison, composer Marvin Hamlisch, Sir Tim Rice and the Bergmans' close friend and long-time associate Barbra Streisand.
Streisand has performed over 50 of their songs over the years and has recently released a new album devoted to the Bergmans' work.
The series examines what has kept the song-writing duo together - and at the top of their game - for over 50 years and includes the stories behind some of their greatest the hits.
In the opening programme, David Jacobs reveals how the writers met, what their initial ambitions were and how success came quickly with their work for the film 'The Thomas Crown Affair'.
Contributors include: Barbra Streisand, Marvin Hamlisch, Johnny Mathis, Norman Jewison, composer Billy Goldenberg, and Alan and Marilyn Bergman.
Featured songs include: 'The Windmills of Your Mind', Bing Crosby's 'Never Be Afraid' and Sarah Vaughan's 'His Eyes, Her Eyes'.
The series is written and produced by Malcolm Prince.
