Episode 36: What’s Love Got To Do With It

Episode 36: What’s Love Got To Do With It
This week’s episode is 1993’s biopic of Tina Turner, through her early days singing with Ike Turner, their marriage, his abuse and her eventual redemption and emergence as the Tina Turner we know today. Both lead actors are superb; Angela Bassett as Tina and Laurence Fishburne as Ike. However, the movie is based on Tina’s own autobiography so our task is to determine whether the portrayal is biased or balanced.

Episode 28: Evita

Episode 28: Evita. This week we look at the 1996 movie of the Lloyd-Webber/Rice musical following the short, dramatic life of Eva Peron, aka Evita starring Madonna in the title role ably supported by Antonio Banderas who, it transpires, can really sing. Turbulent times in Argentina are depicted to song but did the writers get anywhere near the truth of this enigmatic woman? Martin has another rant but as ever, Andrew proves to be the calming influence of the team. We hope you enjoy the show.
