Our Cilla

With contributions from her family and closest friends, this one-hour special for Christmas night celebrates the extraordinary career of Cilla Black – from her early days as a singer in Liverpool to her reign as the queen of Saturday night television.

Famous faces including Ringo Starr, Cliff Richard, Paul O’Grady and Joan Collins join Cilla’s closest friends and her sons Robert and Ben, as well as her two grandchildren, to remember a unique figure in entertainment history.

Alongside rare archive, interview and performance footage of Cilla from the early Sixties onwards, there are candid, humorous and surprising insights from the people who knew her best in a programme which charts the journey of a woman who broke boundaries, both in terms of class and gender, to become a true one-off in the world of show business.
