Sir Bruce Forsyth – A Life In Photos And Backing Britain
BRUCE Forsyth is now Sir Bruce Forsyth. Sir Bruce, as he will be known, has had a good career in showbiz. But the highlight must be his part in the protest movement, I’m Backing Britain. In 1968 Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent put together a tune that Bruce Forsyth would give full throat to:
I’m Backing Britain,
Yes I’m Backing Britain.
We’re all Backing Britain today.
The feeling is growing,
So let’s keep it going,
The good times are blowing our way.
The song sold 7,319 copies. Everyone one of them a collector’s item… (Unlike the campaign’s T-shirst that were made in Portugal).
