with HRH The Princess Anne and Valerie Singleton
"Since the first showing of this film Blue Peter launched an appeal for three million parcels of old socks and pillow cases to provide a dormitory for 20 children at the Starehe Boys Centre. The response was so great the target was trebled - so now 60 destitute African boys will be given the chance of a new life and a secure future. A truly happy ending to the film!
An excellent debut for the Princess in her first major television show."

Another chance to see this much-praised musical biography of Edith Piaf.

Edith Piaf is known as 'The Queen of French Song.' This film retraces her legendary life, from her birth on a pavement in the slums of Paris in December 1915 to her death in 1963 at the age of 47. Helping to tell her extraordinary story are her two husbands, friends and colleagues.
With special contributions from: Charles Aznavour, Bruno Coquatrix,Eddie Constantine, Michel Emer, composer, Marcel Blistene, film director and many songs from Edith Piaf and Yves Montand, Les Compagnons De La Chanson

"The songs - masses of them - are ravishing, and reverberate through the film to its sad end." (Observer)
"Refreshingly free from the usual show business soft soap." (Telegraph)
"A triumph not only of technique, but also of taste." (International Herald Tribune)
