Cut and pasted from the BBC Website:

Mark Lawson talks to Felicity Kendal, Sunday 22 April, 22:25pm BBC4

Mark Lawson talks to Felicity Kendal about her childhood in India and returning to the UK in the 1960s to become one of the best-loved actors of her generation. In a career that has spanned over six decades, she talks about travelling through the Far East with her family's classical theatre company, her hugely popular role in the BBC TV series The Good Life and her subsequent award-winning theatre work. Kendal also talks candidly about her private life, including how she coped with tabloid headlines when her relationship with Tom Stoppard came under media scrutiny.

If you like this and want to delve deeper, I am recommending "White Cargo", her memoir of her early life. I have the audiobook and it is OUTSTANDING. You can buy it on Amazon here:
