  Jane Birkin Wednesday 21 May 2003  
Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg
For the British, she epitomised French sexiness in her scandalous 1969 duet with Serge Gainsbourg, Je t'aime. For the French, she has been adopted as their very own eccentric 'Anglaise'.

As the 50-something grandmother completes a breakneck international tour of her latest work, Jane Birkin joins Jenni to talk about life after Serge and her role as the guardian of his legacy.
Arabesque by Jane Birkin available on CD - Liberty label, ASIN: B00006RNI0, Cat. No: 5427642
