An Audience with Barry Manilow
UTV, 9pm Barry Manilow's plasticised face might send an involuntary shudder or two up some spines as he performs many of his best-loved songs, including Copacabana, Mandy, Could It Be Magic and I Write the Songs, for a celebrity audience.
The star also takes questions on his award-winning career (but not, presum-ably, quest-ions on how to grow old gracefully).
