THURSDAY MAY 28 8.30pm Channel 039

Tracing the story of Ella Fitzgerald’s life, Just One Of Those Things explores how her music became a soundtrack for a tumultuous century. From a 1934 talent contest at the Apollo theatre in Harlem, the film follows Ella’s extraordinary journey across five decades as she reflects the passions and troubles of the times in her music and her life.  Moving beyond conventional biopic, the film uses images and music to evoke the vibe of the era in order to bring to life the context of Ella’s unique career.  Featuring interviews with Smokey Robinson and Tony Bennett.
