The concluding episode of Paul Sexton's profile of the great pop composer, arranger and producer looks at Bacharach's hits of the 1980s and '90s plus current and future projects, and includes a world exclusive.
After Burt ended his regular songwriting partnership with Hal David, he worked with a number of new collaborators, including his third wife Carole Bayer Sager and Christopher Cross, with whom he wrote one of his biggest later copyrights, 1981's 'Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)'.
Celebrated American record executive Clive Davis talks about reuniting Bacharach and Dionne Warwick for the massive 1985 hit 'That's What Friends Are For', also featuring Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Gladys Knight.
Noel Gallagher of Oasis, who almost single-handedly bestowed new 'coolness' on Burt by namechecking him in the band's early interviews, talks entertainigly about his musical hero.
He explains how an image of Bacharach came to be part of Oasis' iconic 'Definitely Maybe' album cover, how he met Burt in Los Angeles and subsequently gave his first-ever solo performance, of This Guy's In Love With You, at an all-star Bacharach tribute at the Royal Albert Hall in 1996.
The programme covers Bacharach's partnership with another devoted British fan, Elvis Costello, with whom he made the 1998 album Painted From Memory.
Costello also appears on At This Time, the album Bacharach released in 2005, which saw him contributing lyrics to his own work for the first time, in his late 70s.
Even more recently, Burt has written for the first time with Brian Wilson, completing the yet-to-be-released song What Love Can Do, from which the programme features an exclusive excerpt.
