Sally Phillips

Actor, comedian and campaigner Sally Phillips hosts a dinner party with a twist. Her guests are from beyond the grave, icons brought back to life by the wonders of the BBC archive.

Actor, comedian and campaigner Sally Phillips is joined for dinner by Hollywood acting legend Jack Lemmon, novelist Barbara Cartland, entertainer and comedy writer Bob Monkhouse, natural scientist and campaigner Miriam Rothschild and comedian, actor and songwriter Victoria Wood.

There's sparkling and candid conversation round the kitchen table as Sally and her guests discuss neediness on stage, life with a disabled child, Marilyn Monroe, women in comedy, and Britain's obsession with class and the anatomy of insects. Alongside laughter, eccentricity and marriage tips, there's also help with how to cope with flea bites.

Written and presented by Sally Phillips
Producers: Sarah Peters and Peregrine Andrews
