Featuring contributions from radio 2 DJs Ken Bruce and Ed Stewart, the Magic of Mantovani orchestra Conductor, Gavin Sutherland, Producer, Franck Leprince and Orchestra Director, Paul Barrett; plus Mantovani`s official biographer Colin Mackenzie; and contributions from guest artists such as Petula Clarke, Edmund Hockridge and , this is the definitive story of Mantovani - The King of Strings!
