"I don't try to be the star"

Synopsis
 

This very lacklustre documentary from the BBC is a cobble together of interviews with her colleagues and friends and very little input from the great lady. When she does appear she comes across very down to earth and normal, and not really a 'star', but a great working actress and comedienne.

The clips that are chosen do take from the better things that she has done, and also shows where her great partnership with Terry Scott started (not Terry and June we find out). Other highlights are her Ab Fab apperances as Eddi's mother.

No real insight in to June's private life, but a nice, walk down memory lane for all the things she has done in such a long career that has spanned over 50 years.
