and following the
future inventor of the
guillotine as he
uncovers a disease —
named Blue Blood —
that drives the
aristocracy to murder
commoners. The trailer
suggests executions
and much heated
dialogue from haughty
types vowing to destroy
“the Brotherhood” that

New Netflix series are
coming so fast it would
be impossible for the
most committed couch
potato to keep up.
Today sees the arrival
of an earnest new teen
drama Grand Army and
a third series of Star
Trek: Discovery, but the
most intriguing is this
French series set in 1787

the coffee bars of Fifties
Soho to show how Cliff,
the Shadows, Billy Fury,
Lonnie Donegan and
Marty Wilde put a
European spin on the
new rock’n’roll sound
coming out of America.
Still, even Cliff wouldn’t
suggest his singing was
matched by his acting,
which you can enjoy in
the 1963 film Summer
Holiday, which kicks
off the evening at 8pm.

those evergreen
Eurovision contenders
Congratulations and
Power to All Our
Friends. It’s enough for
Cliff not to seem too
immodest when he says
in Rock’n’Roll Britannia
(which follows at
10.50pm): “I did play a
major, major role in the
birth and growth of pop
and rock music.” This
film takes us back to

as the centrepiece of
tonight’s curated
evening will remind us.
Sir Cliff Richard at the
BBC (9.40pm) is the
usual compendium of
clips, but will show how
his underrated run of
melodic late 1970s/
early 1980s hits (Devil
Woman; Wired for
Sound) were preceded
by those fast-paced
rockers with the
Shadows, such as Move

No 1 with The
Millennium Prayer), the
sobriquet is as apt as
ever. Look up the
lockdown session he
did from home for the
Royal Albert Hall in
June, where he is as
boyishly poptastic as
ever as he belts out the
hits. His cred is of
course another matter
but before he found the
Lord, he had a
remarkable run of hits,
