S01E25 Dusty Springfield 25/02/2003 Living Famously traces the story of the dramatic life and career of British pop diva Dusty Springfield. Singer Kiki Dee, producer Pete Waterman, club promoter Peter Stringfellow and backing musician Derek Wadsworth are amongst those interviewed. Dusty's singing career began in 1958 when, at the age of 19, she replied to an ad in The Stage to join female vocal trio, The Lana Sisters.

But, despite her success in Britain, Dusty longed to make it in the land of her idols, America. Aiming to capitalise on her growing profile there, she signed with Jerry Wexler's Atlantic Records to produce her first US recorded album, Dusty in Memphis. But, though critically acclaimed, and including the hit single, Son of a Preacher Man, the album wasn't a commercial success. And, although Dusty moved to America following the album's release in 1970, her ambition to become the 'white Aretha' was destined to falter. After several years of living in LA without commercial success, Dusty returned to
