To celebrate Joan's birthday, BBC 2 are screening
two programmes. One of which is a new edition of their popular series 'Talking Pictures' narrated by Celia Imrie, who appeared with Joan in the film 'In The Bleak Midwinter'. This series looks back at Joan's life and career through clips and interviews..
Celia Imrie looks back on the life and loves of Dame Joan Collins, star of the big and small screen, sex symbol and all-round national treasure. Through archive interviews and her appearances on the BBC over the years, we hear Joan’s story in her own words. We discover how Joan survived the highs and lows of a career spanning five marriages and seven incredible decades, and see that the secret to her success is not just down to looks, style or even determination – but also a keen sense of fun and humour, that she’s kept shining since she first hit the big-time.
Before Talking Pictures tune in at 19:20 to catch a showing of a series from 2003, 'Guess Who's Coming To Dinner' hosted by Anne Robinson and it features Joan who discusses who she would invite to the ultimate dinner party!
