David stars in a new BBC documentary

David Morris BBC DocumentaryDavid has become the star of a new BBC documentary detailing his rise to whistling fame: Whistling David Morris: Life As A Professional Puckerer.

Filmed by Ian Ellerby of Butleycreek Films, the four-minute short gives viewers an insight into how David came to be a professional whistler, took on the world (and won) and continues to hone his craft and delight audiences the world over.

“I don’t see myself retiring in the near future,” says David in the documentary. “I hope I can keep it going for quite a few years yet. One day I will have to retire, but I better keep on whistling though.”

David’s music on the TSB advert now available to download

Good news for fans of David’s whistling on the series of TSB adverts: the music is now available to download from the iTunes store for just 79p.

Henry’s Theme, composed by Anne Dudley, first hit our screens in February 2014 as part of TSB’s “Local Banking for Britain” campaign, and has gained many fans. Now the catchy ditty can be yours to own.

David in Venice

Here’s a little something from the archives to brighten up your day: David performing two operatic classics; O Sole Mio and Nessun Dorma.

The first piece (made famous in the 1980s in the Walls Cornetto adverts) was written in 1898. The title translates literally as “My Sunshine”.

Nessun Dorma is taken from the opera Turandot, but is perhaps best known as the title music from the BBC’s coverage of the 1990 football World Cup.
