A nugget from the BBC archives. Recorded in 1971, Domingo was 30 years old; he had just reached his peak and was in truly magnificent voice for this program, part performance, part documentary.

There is also a splendid interview with Bernard Levin (Domingo was still very keen on his football), and the famous tenor is also seen playing with his young family.

This documentary is a personal look at Ta'ziyeh through the eyes of this man, who has championed it as a theatrical artform since 1975.
