Paul O'Grady's 100 Years of Movie Musicals

Series 1



If you fancy spending “an evening wallowing in a century’s worth of musical fabulousness” with Paul O’Grady then you’d best make a date with your sofa.

O’Grady is taking us through almost 100 years of all-singing all-dancing cinematic delights, featuring singing nuns, flying cars and a man with a memorable black umbrella.

Michaell Ball, Christine Baranski and James Corden are among the talking heads who join him as he charts a century of movie musical joy. Whether you’re a Funny Girl in search of a West Side Story or feeling Les Misérables, this is the one that you want. Ooh ooh ooh, honey!


Paul explores the history of the genre, from its roots in the early 20th century, through its golden era, and up to the multimillion-dollar industry it has become. Featuring contributions from James Corden, Michael Ball, Michael York, Joel Grey, Sheila Hancock, Benny Andersson and Scott Baio, and the directors and stars of Les Misérables discuss singing the whole score live on set.
