Good evening and welcome to the Royal Albert Hall

0:00:280:00:30

for an evening of unashamed glitz and glamour,

0:00:300:00:33

as the BBC Proms celebrate the golden age of Hollywood musicals.

0:00:330:00:38

In their heyday, the film studios employed

0:00:380:00:41

some of the great tunesmiths and musicians of the day

0:00:410:00:44

and the songs they wrote were made famous by legendary stars

0:00:440:00:47

like Judy Garland and Gene Kelly

0:00:470:00:50

and of course, the incomparable Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

0:00:500:00:54

Tonight, those songs have been lovingly and expertly recreated

0:00:540:00:58

by Geordie conductor, John Wilson

0:00:580:01:00

and he's going to whisk us back in time to an era

0:01:000:01:02

when glamorous heroines and handsome heroes

0:01:020:01:05

danced and sang their way to happiness.

0:01:050:01:08

So dust off your dancing shoes, brush off your tails

0:01:080:01:11

and get ready for an evening of glorious Technicolor for the ears.

APPLAUSE

0:49:210:49:26

Matthew Ford and the Maida Vale Singers singing This Heart of Mine,

0:49:260:49:30

a song written especially for Fred Astaire

0:49:300:49:33

when he starred in Ziegfield Follies.

0:49:330:49:36

The John Wilson Orchestra conducted, of course, by John Wilson.

0:49:360:49:41

John Wilson will return to the stage in a few minutes for the second half of tonight's Prom.

0:49:490:49:55

He first fell in love with film musicals as a young boy

0:49:550:49:58

watching Saturday afternoon matinees on television at home in Gateshead -

0:49:580:50:02

an antidote to endless sport, he says.

0:50:020:50:05

This is the third time he's brought the magic of musicals to the Proms

0:50:050:50:09

and his fascination and admiration remains a lifelong passion.

0:50:090:50:13

The enduring appeal of these movie musicals, for me, is simply the tunes.

0:50:170:50:21

First-class tunes, brilliantly played and sung perfectly.

0:50:230:50:26

Here you get some of the best songs of the last century in the most stylish settings.

0:50:260:50:33

I chose 42nd Street because I needed a good, sparky opener.

0:50:410:50:44

You get these extended routines which involve the chorus and the soloists

0:50:440:50:50

and it makes for a very satisfactory set piece.

0:50:500:50:53

# I just got an invitation through the mail... #

0:50:530:50:58

Fred Astaire had more hit songs written for him than any other performer.

0:50:580:51:03

More than Frank Sinatra, more than Ella Fitzgerald or any of those great jazz singers.

0:51:030:51:09

Irving Berlin loved Fred Astaire's interpretations of his songs

0:51:090:51:13

because he didn't deviate from the melody he'd composed.

0:51:130:51:17

# Tying up my white tie

0:51:170:51:19

# Brushing off my tail #

0:51:190:51:22

Top Hat, White Tie and Tails is one of his signature tunes.

0:51:220:51:25

It's a very early example of the extended dance routine.

0:51:250:51:30

We start the second half with a sequence from A Star Is Born.

0:51:350:51:38

Judy Garland gives one of her best performances in one of Harold Arlen's best songs

0:51:380:51:43

with a terrific lyric by Ira Gershwin in The Man That Got Away.

0:51:430:51:47

It was an absolute no-brainer. We had to include that.

0:51:470:51:50

# And all because

0:51:500:51:52

# Of the man that got away... #

0:51:520:51:59

I'm including Triplets, which was from The Band Wagon.

0:51:590:52:04

The sequence starts - Fred Astaire, Nanette Fabray and Jack Buchanan.

0:52:040:52:08

They are all dressed up as babies and they hate each other.

0:52:100:52:15

# We hate each other very much

0:52:150:52:17

# We hate our folks... #

0:52:170:52:19

I've chosen to end the concert with Put On Your Sunday Clothes from Hello Dolly!

0:52:190:52:23

I think that musical is kind of the last big movie to come from the old studio system.

0:52:230:52:29

# Put on your Sunday clothes There's lots of world out there... #

0:52:330:52:39

Everyone in Yonkers is going to New York for the day and they're getting on the train.

0:52:390:52:43

You basically see the emptying out of the town onto this train during the concert.

0:52:430:52:48

It could only happen in a musical.

0:52:480:52:51

Singing and dancing are primary human impulses,

0:52:510:52:56

even if you are not very good at singing or dancing,

0:52:560:52:59

it's something we have a need to do as human beings.

0:52:590:53:04

And...what's wrong with that?

0:53:040:53:07

The second half of tonight's Prom charts the Hollywood musical

0:53:130:53:18

from the Fabulous 50s to its final flourish at the end of the 1960s.

0:53:180:53:22

We begin with Judy Garland, the ultimate Hollywood star,

0:53:220:53:25

known as much for her troubled life as her tremendous talent.

0:53:250:53:30

In the film A Star Is Born, she gave what many regard

0:53:300:53:33

as her finest screen performance, with truly memorable songs.

0:53:330:53:37

Among them Gotta Have Me Go With You

0:53:370:53:39

and the heartbreaking The Man That Got Away.

0:53:390:53:42

APPLAUSE

0:53:420:53:46

And here, once again, to conduct his orchestra, is John Wilson.

# That bully, wild and woolly Hollywood

1:50:451:50:48

# They hire cowboys and then hang their chaps up

1:50:481:50:52

# And doll their maps up And give them all that they lack

1:50:521:50:57

# Now ain't it funny

1:50:571:50:59

# They pay 'em money

1:50:591:51:01

# Shows what you can do if your horse can act

1:51:011:51:04

# Hooray for Hollywood

1:51:041:51:07

# They hire fellas whose physiques are good

1:51:071:51:11

# And then they tell them they're the perfect shape men

1:51:111:51:14

# To act like ape men

1:51:141:51:16

# And then convince them they should

1:51:161:51:19

# They make 'em grunt and yell... #

1:51:341:51:42

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:51:421:51:47

It had to be that as an encore, didn't it?

1:51:471:51:50

That was Hooray For Hollywood, from the 1937 film Hollywood Hotel.

1:51:501:51:54

It's kind of the film industry's anthem.

1:51:541:51:57

It's played at the Oscars

1:51:571:51:58

and award ceremonies around the world.

MUSIC: "No Business Like Show Business" by Irving Berlin

1:52:001:52:04

# There's no business like show business

1:52:211:52:25

# Like no business I know

1:52:251:52:29

# Everything about it is appealing

1:52:291:52:32

# Everything the traffic will allow

1:52:321:52:36

# Nowhere can you get that happy feeling

1:52:361:52:39

# When you are stealing that extra bow

1:52:391:52:43

# There's no people like show people

1:52:431:52:46

# They smile when they are low

1:52:461:52:50

# Yesterday they told you you would not go far

1:52:501:52:53

# That night you opened and there you are

1:52:531:52:57

# Next thing on your dressing room they've hung a star

1:52:571:53:00

# Let's go on with the show

1:53:001:53:05

# The costumes, the scenery the makeup, the props

1:53:051:53:11

# The audience that lifts you when you're down

1:53:111:53:15

# The headaches, the heartaches the backaches, the flops

1:53:151:53:20

# The sheriff who escorts you out of town

1:53:201:53:25

# The opening when your heart beats like a drum

1:53:251:53:31

# The closing when the customers don't come

1:53:311:53:36

# There's no business like show business

1:53:381:53:43

# Like no business I know

1:53:431:53:47

# You get word before the show has started

1:53:471:53:51

# That your favourite uncle died at dawn

1:53:511:53:54

# Top of that your pa and ma have parted

1:53:541:53:57

# You're brokenhearted

1:53:571:53:59

# But you go on

1:53:591:54:01

# There's no people like show people

1:54:011:54:04

# They smile when they are low

1:54:041:54:08

# Even with a turkey that you know will fold

1:54:081:54:12

# You may be stranded out in the cold

1:54:121:54:15

# Still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold

1:54:151:54:18

# Let's go on with the show

1:54:181:54:23

# Let's go

1:54:231:54:25

# On with the show

1:54:251:54:30

# No business like show business there's no business

1:54:301:54:35

# The cowboys, the tumblers the wrestlers, the clowns

1:54:351:54:38

# The roustabouts that move the show at dawn.

1:54:381:54:41

APPLAUSE

1:54:411:54:42

# The music, the spotlight the people, the towns

1:54:421:54:45

# Your baggage with the labels pasted on

1:54:451:54:48

# People standing out in front on opening night

1:54:481:54:51

# And there's your billing right out there in lights

1:54:511:54:55

# There's no people like show people

1:54:551:54:58

# They smile when they are low

1:54:581:55:02

# Even with a turkey that you know will fold

1:55:021:55:05

# You may be stranded out in the cold

1:55:051:55:09

# Still you wouldn't change it for a sack of gold

1:55:091:55:12

# You go on with the show

1:55:121:55:15

# There's no business like show business

1:55:151:55:19

# Like no business I know

1:55:191:55:21

1:56:051:56:15

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

1:56:151:56:19

And I hardly need to tell you

1:56:191:56:21

that was There's No Business Like Show Business,

1:56:211:56:26

raising the roof here at the Royal Albert Hall.

1:56:261:56:29

Caroline O'Connor

1:56:311:56:34

1:56:341:56:36

The John Wilson Orchestra on their feet.

1:56:391:56:41

John Wilson taking yet another bow!

1:56:411:56:44

What a night it has been.

1:56:441:56:46

APPLAUSE CONTINUES

1:56:461:56:49

And I'm afraid that brings us to the end

1:57:021:57:04

of this incredible evening here at the Royal Albert Hall.

1:57:041:57:07

If you'd like to find out more about the musicians

1:57:071:57:10

and artists performing tonight,

1:57:101:57:11

there is more information on the Proms website.

1:57:111:57:14

Do take a look at that.

1:57:141:57:16

From me, Katie Derham,

1:57:161:57:17

thank you for watching. I hope you've enjoyed it.

1:57:171:57:20

Have a very good night.
