Film information

Story: Box set featuring Barbra Streisand in five era-defining television specials that introduced her to the world. 'My Name Is Barbra' (1965) was Streisand's first solo television outing, featuring fantastic sets as a backdrop to her dynamic vocals. The programme won five Emmy Awards. A sequence at Bergdorf Goodman mixes satire with music and high fashion fantasy; her medley of songs includes 'Second-Hand Rose', 'Brother Can You Spare A Dime?' and 'The Best Things In Life Are Free'. 'Color Me Barbra' (1966) was aired just after Streisand had completed a successful Broadway run in 'Funny Girl' and had seven gold records to her credit. She sings surrounded by animals in a circus dream sequence and wanders the Philadelphia Museum of Art. In 'The Belle Of 14th Street' (1967), Streisand is joined by actor Jason Robards in this tribute to turn of the century vaudeville. Amongst the highlights is a duet with herself via the miracle of technology, and Streisand and Robards performing excerpts from the Tempest. In 'Barbra Streisand: A Happening In Central Park', an estimated 135,000 people jammed Central Park's Sheep Meadow for this free solo concert in 1968. Six televison cameras and a film camera mounted on a helicopter recorded this concert and the audience from every conceivable angle. Finally 'Barbra Streisand and Other Musical Instruments' (1973) was her first television appearance after a five year gap. It features over 150 musicians from around the world performing on almost every conceivable instrument.
