Barbra Streisand gives Netflix access to six past TV specials and previously unseen footage from 'A Star Is Born'

Barbra Streisand and Netflix have announced that on June 15, the streaming network will make available six of her past TV specials, as well as her 1976 movie "A Star Is Born" with previously unseen footage from the film. The announcement was made on June 10, when Streisand did a Q&A with fellow Grammy-and-Oscar-winner Jamie Foxx as part of Netflix's FYSee series to have Netflix shows considered for Emmy Awards.

The six specials that will be available on Netflix (on dates to be announced) are "My Name Is Barbra" (1965), "Color Me Barbra" (1966), "Barbra Streisand: A Happening in Central Park" (1968), "Barbra Streisand and Other Musical Instruments" (1973), "Barbra Streisand: The Concert" (1994), and "Barbra Streisand: Timeless" (2001). 

The previously unseen footage from "A Star Is Born" is of Streisand performing an instrumental version of “Evergreen” for the first time, as well as more footage from the “With One More Look At You/Watch Closely Now” medley finale. Streisand was a producer on 1976's "A Star I Born," which starred Streisand and Kris Kristofferson as a musician couple in a volatile relationship. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are starring in the 2018 remake of "A Star Is Born," which also had movie versions in 1937 and 1954.

In November 2017, Netflix premiered the concert documentary "Barbra: The Music… The Mem'ries… The Magic!," which focused on the December 2016 Miami show on her tour of the same title. The tour was in support of her 2016 duets album Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway. Foxx and several other actor/singers (including Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Chris Pine) were featured on the album.
