Kings of 70s Romance is a rather cheesy look at some crooners who made it big in the 1970s. Of course some of them were bona fide legends like the walrus of love, Barry White a man who could go lower and deeper.

Lesley Joseph narrates a documentary about the unlikely stars that made women swoon in the 1970s. First up was Demis Roussos, the kaftan wearing Greek who was physically as big as Barry White. However often a figure of fun he was immortalised in the Play for Today, Abigail's Party.

David Soul was an actor who made it big on television in Starsky & Hutch and for a brief period in the latter part of the 1970s had several hit singles and his own brand of Beatlemania.

Leo Sayer was probably the most talented of the British stars, a man who started off in a clown suit but has a series of hit singles in his own name and wrote hits for other people. His success in the charts lasted until the early 1980s and even got to number one in the new millennium.

Gilbert O'Sullivan had a run of hits in the early 1970s but a protracted court case over royalties meant his recording career stalled.

A diverting hour, but I get the feeling some of the participants might had been picked up at random and many of them, apart from David Soul could not be described as lookers yet women screamed non stop for them.
