ITV documentary to go behind the scenes in Cliff Richard court case

Cliff Richard

ITV will lift the lid on Sir Cliff Richard’s privacy battle against the BBC in a one-hour documentary later this month.

The film, Sir Cliff Richard: 60 Years In Private And In Public, has been produced by indie Spun Gold Television to mark Richard’s 60-year anniversary in show business.

It offers exclusive access to Richard as he lodges and then wins a privacy case against the BBC for its reporting of a raid of his home in 2014.

The film also follows Richard as he starts his new tour in Newcastle, records his first original album in 15 years and features interviews with Barry Gibb, Olivia Newton-John, Hank Marvin, Lord Lloyd-Webber and Joan Collins.

Richard also speaks about the turmoil of being accused and cleared of historic sex offences.

The film is directed by Jamie Batten and executive produced by Juliet Rice. It was commissioned for ITV by James Cohen.

“Sir Cliff Richard: 60 Years In Private And In Public is the most complete portrait of one of Britain’s greatest show business legends, revealing what drives him to continue recording and performing, where he finds strength, how his faith has got him through the dark times and the secret of his enduring longevity and appeal,” said Daniela Neumann, managing director of London-based Spun Gold.
