SUNDAY FOR SAMMY 2012. Many thanks for sending me the Sunday for Sammy DVD so quickly. This is a highly entertaining, amusing and well produced DVD. In addition, the three fantastic songs performed by the excellent Joe McElderry make it essential viewing for his many fans. Jo O
Alex Glasgow - Northern Drift & Joe Lives My CD of Northern Drift and Joe Lives! arrived this morning - many thanks for the speedy service, it's much appreciated. Many years ago I had a LP version of Joe Lives! and really enjoyed John Woodvine's performance. Sadly, somewhere along the way in various house moves and de-clutterings it went astray and I thought it was gone for good. I had not been able to find a new copy in any format anywhere. But just the other day I was prompted to do a new Google search for John Woodvine and Joe Lives! and found your firm and all your marvellous material, and there it was, hence my order. I am very pleased to have a fresh new copy of Joe Lives! It's playing now as I type this message. I'm trying not to sing along too loud... As an expat-Geordie I'll be coming back for more of your recordings. Best regards Alan T

The Owen Brannigan Story DVD Sir, 79years, ex-geordie, ex GP, may I say how much I enjoyed your DVD about Owen Brannigan. The accompanist interviewed was superb. But why no mention of Ernest Lush? Their "Friday Night" recitals were superb. Clever, witty, superbly professional, etc. Regards, James B

Featuring Blaydon Races, performed in Sir Bobby's honour by Auf Wiedersehen Pet stars Jimmy Nail, Tim Healy and Kevin Whately.

In aid of The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.
Introduced by Alan Shearer.

Sir Bobby Robson was a national and international hero whose roots were firmly planted in the coalfields of North East England. His success was based upon his ability to communicate his passion and enthusiasm to those around him. In what became Sir Bobby's final filmed interview he looked back on his childhood in County Durham, his love of music and his phenomenal sporting achievements. He also talked about his final great project, the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.



Everyone who knew Sir Bobby has a fond memory and a funny story. On this celebratory DVD we have collected some of the best of them from his sons, Mark, Andrew and Paul, Alan Shearer, Paul Gascoigne Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Alex Ferguson, Jack Charlton, Malcolm Macdonald, Gary Lineker, Shay Given, Freddy Shepherd, Brendan Foster, Bobby Moncur, Steve Cram, Desmond Lynam, Ant and Dec, Brendan Healy, Billy Mitchell, John Gibson, Bobby Pattinson, Tim Healy, Jimmy Nail and Kevin Whately.

Robson DVD boosts foundation funds. Sir Bobby Robson would have been "astounded" and "truly honoured" by a film of his life story, one of his sons has said.A DVD entitled A Knight To Remember has been produced to raise cash for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, which funds research into the early detection of cancer.It features tributes from a host of stars, including Paul Gascoigne, Ant and Dec, Sir Bobby Charlton, Gary Lineker, Des Lynam, as well as interviews with Sir Bobby in his last months.

He died in July at home in County Durham aged 76 after battling cancer five times.The film was launched at the Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle and moved many in the audience to tears as Sir Bobby spoke bravely about his battle with the disease, the loves of his life and his triumphs and failures as a football manager.It also raised many laughs, particularly when Gascoigne and Sir Bobby fondly reminisced in separate interviews about the Italia 90 World Cup. Gazza laughed as he recalled driving the England boss to distraction by undermining Robson's careful preparations ahead of the quarter-finals against Cameroon. And the tireless former midfielder told how he was caught playing tennis at 11pm before the semi-finals because he was too excited to sleep.Sir Bobby was famed for forgetting footballers' names, but in the DVD Alan Shearer questions whether this was a ruse to raise a laugh or trick people into thinking he was off-the-pace.

After the screening, Sir Bobby's son Andrew said: "I think he would have been astounded. He would really have enjoyed the footage, it covered many aspects of his life. I think he would have been truly honoured."Shearer, a patron of the foundation which has now raised more than £2 million, said: "We are all absolutely delighted with the way it has all come off. Probably more importantly, Sir Bobby would have been delighted."

Sir Bobby's widow, Lady Elsie, said: "He would have loved it. He would have been proud and chuffed."
