The Ukulele Man

 

Presented by Marcel Cole

The true story of Britain's greatest wartime entertainer!

The true story of wartime entertainer and ukulele legend George Formby! From the battlefields of Europe to the distant corners of the British Empire, ‘The Ukulele Man’ is the untold story of Britain’s greatest wartime entertainer!

He was banned by the BBC, declared insane by his wife, and still became the UK’s highest paid entertainer! Join Marcel Cole and his real life mother Katie as they take you back to an era when live entertainment was king, and pay homage to the greatest entertainer of them all.
