Audrey Hepburn 3

Yesterday I chanced upon the BBC Two series The World's Most Photographed, Episode 3 Audrey Hepburn, made in 2005. It's available on iPlayer for the next four weeks (CLICK). It's an eye-opening 29-minute film beginning with Audrey as a young girl joining the resistance in Nazi occupied Holland to convey messages on her bicycle. The Nazis confiscated food for their troops. Starvation led to Audrey being too weak to go to ballet school after the war. Her Fascist father deserting the family was another deep trauma in her life.
