Hallmark Channel announced Tuesday that it will present Christmas with
Tony Bennett -- Behind the Scenes as a half-hour primetime special Nov. 16
at 8 p.m.
The program will mix Bennett's singing with the London Symphony Orchestra
with footage of his rehearsals and recollections of Christmases past.
In addition, the network said, the CD on which this special is based is being
produced by Hallmark Cards and will be sold at Hallmark Gold Crown Stores during
the Christmas season. It will retail for $7.95.
That recording will mark Bennett's first yuletide foray since his 1968
release, Snowfall: The Tony Bennett Christmas Album.
