The multi-award winning artist, Sting, joins Dermot O’Leary for an in-depth interview about his remarkable life and career, in the latest edition of Reel Stories for BBC Two. The programme, to be broadcast on 11 December at 9.25pm, will see Dermot and Sting settle down in a cinema to relive some of Sting’s most famous performances and interviews from over the years from his first TV appearance on the BBC's The Old Grey Whistle Test in 1978, to performing at Live Aid in 1985 and his reunion tour with the Police in 2007.

 

The show will then be followed by 'Sting: When The Last Ship Sails' in which Sting performs songs from his album The Last Ship in an intimate performance recorded in 2013 at the Public Theatre, New York. The music was inspired by the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in north-east England, where the former Police frontman was born and raised, and forms part of his Broadway musical. The concert also features an appearance by actor and singer Jimmy Nail.
