Bonjour Mr Aznavour - Episode 2


Petula Clark tells of Charles' relationship with Edith Piaf, his first tour to America with musical partner Pierre Roche and his first steps into the world of films. She also looks at Charles' early song writing success and the initial criticism he received because of his unusual voice and appearance. Contributions come from French chanson singer Juliette Greco, Songwriter Don Black and Charles' nephew and music producer Patrick Shart. And there's music from Edith Piaf and Le Compagnons de Chanson, Nina Simone, Juliette Greco and Charles Aznavour himself.
