The Undiscovered Peter Cook

Documentary about one of Britain's greatest satirists, Peter Cook, with unprecedented access to his private recordings, diaries, letters, photographs and much more.

Following the death of one of Britain's greatest satirists, Peter Cook, in 1995, his widow Lin locked the door of his house and refused all access to the media - until more than twenty years later, when she invited her friend Victor Lewis-Smith and a BBC crew inside to make a documentary about the man she knew and loved, with unprecedented access to Peter's private recordings, diaries, letters, photographs and much more.
