Written by Gavin on 29th May 2020
Tom Jones’ 80th birthday will be recognized with a special programme of celebratory content across the BBC next month.
The Pontypridd Popstar celebrates his big day on Sunday 7th June, and BBC One Wales have announced a new hour-long programme called ‘Tom Jones at 80’ to be shown on Friday 5th June at 9pm, using rarely seen archive footage and interviews to take a journey through the singer’s career, reflecting on almost 60 years in show business.
It will air simultaneously on BBC Four, kicking off a night of programming based around the It’s Not Unusual singer on that channel.
Meanwhile a new two-part interview, titled Sir Tom’s Musical Years will air on BBC Radio Wales.
