The Dave Clark Five and Beyond: Glad All Over

Tuesday, June 3 at 8:00 p.m.

This star-studded special is highlighted by performances and rare footage not seen in decades

"The Dave Clark Five and Beyond – Glad All Over"  -- a "Great Performances Special" -- features newly filmed interviews with Tom Hanks, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt of The E Street Band, Stevie Wonder, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Gene Simmons of Kiss, Whoopi Goldberg, Dionne Warwick, ’60s fashion icon Twiggy and Ian McKellen, all sharing their memories of how the music of the 60s and the cultural revolution of 1964 changed their lives forever.

Included in the film are the DC5’s performances on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” along with rare live concert footage. Much of this material has not been seen in decades, either on television or home video.

The film also features never-before-seen footage from Clark’s personal archives together with performances by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Who, Dusty Springfield, Stevie Wonder, the Supremes, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, Otis Redding, Freddie Mercury of Queen and Laurence Olivier.  The DC5 were the first English group to tour America (in May 1964), thus spearheading the British Invasion.
