Synopsis

The UK's comedy heroine of the WWII era's finest moments collected. Starting out life as a stage comedienne, Joyce Grenfell became a much in demand act as a troop morale booster in WWII so that by the time of its heyday, she was a natural shoe-in for the world of TV and film. Through starring in a slew of films and television programmes featuring her famed routines of jaunty wit and highfaluting' delivery, hers became a face no Briton could fail to know. Here, the finest moments from her own BBC TV show that ran between 1964 and 1972 are collected - from stand up skits to comic songs at the piano with her accompanist of long standing, Mr. William Blezard - it's a lasting document of Grenfell's comedy genius.
