In many ways Joyce Grenfell was the pioneer of British female comedy. Through her radio broadcasts, her St Trinian's films, and her regular appearances on BBC TV's Face The Music, Joyce was one of the most popular and enduring performers of her generation. But who was Joyce Grenfell and what was she really like?

Clive James, Maureen Lipman and Dillie Keane join a host of Joyce's friends and colleagues to paint a candid and affectionate portrait of this great British star.
