In 2011 legendary stage composer Andrew Lloyd Webber brought the 1939 film version of The Wizard of Oz-with a few additional songs--to the stage. However, before they could do that Webber and the other producers had to carefully select just the right Dorothy and Toto to fill the all-important roles. Over the Rainbow is the 2010 British talent produced by BBC that chronicles this meticulous search. The show was hosted by Graham Norton with the contestants judged by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The end was result was the handpicked choices of this living legend. Along the way glimpses will be given on Webber's previous stage talent searches for past musical performances. In 2012 CBC produced a Canadian version of the show for the Toronto production of the same stage version. The Canadian Over the Rainbow was hosted by Daryn Jones with the contestants judged by Arlene Phillips, Thom Allison, Louise Pitre, and, of course, Andrew Lloyd Webber.
