Now that he's back sitting in judgement on The Voice, it's worth reminding ourselves how Tom Jones earnt his place in the pop pantheon. An
profile from 2010 recalls how his supercharged vocals won the admiration of Elvis, Frank Sinatra and millions of fans after he burst onto the scene with It's Not Unusual in 1965 - and how he later made one of the great comebacks in pop.
A compilation of his BBC archive performances and a BBC Sessions live set from last year round out the picture.
Alan Yentob meets the singer and coach on The Voice UK, who has sold more than 100 million albums, hosted a successful TV variety show and headlined at some of the biggest venues in Las Vegas. Includes contributions by fellow musicians Jools Holland, Sandie Shaw, Robbie Williams, Cerys Matthews and Kelly Jones. First shown in 2010.
