For the first time, this BBC collection celebrates the many classic performances of BAFTA and EMMY winner Dame Diana Rigg. Although she first rose to fame as Emma Peel in THE AVENGERS, Diana Rigg went from sexy starlet and Bond girl to an acclaimed career as an award-winning actress in theatre, television and film. Diana Rigg at the BBC demonstrates the range of her talents, from her role as the feisty Mrs. Adela Bradley in THE MRS BRADLEY MYSTERIES, to the bitter drama of LITTLE EYOLF and rarely seen sketch comedy series THREE PIECE SUITE. This must have collection also includes the long unavailable GENGHIS COHN (featuring an early appearance by Daniel Craig) and UNEXPLAINED LAUGHTER, where Ms. Rigg plays a broken-hearted journalist who retreats to the country only to be haunted by ghostly laughter. Throughout this collection, Ms. Rigg is supported by a who's who of British talent, including Bob Hoskins, John Cleese, Peggy Ashcroft, Charles Dance and Anthony Hopkins. Also included is a brand new interview with Dame Diana Rigg, sharing insights into the making of each of these programs, plus her hilarious appearance on Morecambe and Wise.
