Tonight, Nicholas Tresilian celebrates the music of Leonard Bernstein in Classic FM In Concert (9.0pm, Classic FM). Bernstein's best-known works, of course, are such lively entertainments as West Side Story and Candide (the overture to which opens the evening). But his more serious output is also represented. The New York Philharmonic offers the Chichester Psalms followed by the Bournemouth Symphony's version of Symphony No 2, based on WH Auden's poem The Age of Anxiety.
It's 10 years since the death of Sammy Davies Jr at the early age of 64, and David Jacobs is marking the anniversary with a six-part biography of the artist known for years as Mr Entertainment (10.0pm, Radio 2). Once, when asked what handicaps he'd faced on his way to the top, Davis famously replied "I'm a one-eyed, black, American Jew. What more do you want?" In reality he was a star singer and dancer from the age of eight.
