Glastonbury Golden Greats

A trip down Memory Lane as BBC4 revisits some of the great performances by classic artists at Glastonbury

Glastonbury Festival begins later this week, and while the likes of Coldplay, Adele and Muse will draw the big crowds, those with a soft spot for nostalgia (probably most people after a couple of ciders) will be looking forward to Jeff Lynne's ELO, Earth, Wind and Fire and Ronnie Spector.

Following a chance to see Lionel Richie at Glastonbury 2015 (10.45pm), this programme (11.45pm) rounds up 'golden greats' from previous years, including Shirley Bassey (resplendent in a pink ballgown and diamante-encrusted wellies), Dolly Parton, Tony Bennett and Neil Diamond. As Dame Shirley says, let's Get the Party Started!
