Here’s a 24-carat treat for film and theatre fans of every stripe: a lavish countdown of the ten finalists chosen from a poll of Britain’s finest actresses as voted for by Radio Times readers. As befits such an auspicious affair, the show is hosted by the delightfully plummy – if ever so slightly “luvvie” – Simon Callow, who emotes his way through the careers and biographies of Deborah Kerr, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench et hallowed al, from various positions in a swanky theatre. You’ll find yourself gripped with admiration, not only for the assembled best, but also for the numerous achievements of the British film industry. Contributions from the likes of Natasha Richardson and Billy Connolly add a bit of beef to the glamour.
