    Late 1940s/early 50s... Britain is emerging from the gloom and austerity of the war years with an appetite for change and fresh optimism. Social upheaval and urban renewal brings with it a demand for different forms of culture and entertainment. It is a time of enormous growth for the British entertainment industry and new stars are bursting on the scene to lead the way.

    Many of these extraordinary artists are still alive today. These cultural icons, whose collective memories and experiences are of incalculable, historical value, have taken part in an exciting new interview series called British Legends of Stage and Screen.

    Reflecting not only on their careers in theatre, film and television, the artists also look back on a changing time, a life of extraordinary encounters and the events that shaped their lives.
