The programme shows very early recordings of Dame Judi performing Shakespeare and her first television appearance in Z Cars. We see performances in classic 60s dramas Talking to a Stranger and Four in the Morning, then show how she became a television sitcom star in A Fine Romance and As Time Goes By. Her sense of humour is illustrated by rarely seen outtakes from the shows. Dame Judi's career enjoyed a late flourish when three films propelled her into the international spotlight. Goldeneye, Mrs Brown and Shakespeare in Love reinvented her as a film star and earned her an Oscar. Among many colleagues, the programme features Sir Michael Parkinson, Geoffrey Palmer and Simon Callow. Written by Anonymous See less
