Diana Ross: Diana! (BBC 2)

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, 8 October 1971

MOTOWN'S MUCH-heralded first independent production centred on Diana Ross, proved to be all it was cracked out to be – and more! Screened on B.B.C. 2 on Saturday, September 18 (it is due to be shown on B.B.C. 1 at some later date) it was a lavish show that gave every indication that Miss Ross is more than just a good singer! In fact, the first shot of Diana singing the opening bars of 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' on a beach – which then turned into a hilarious piece of comedy, proved that Diana is as good a comedienne as vocalist.

Total word count of piece: 699
