BBC Radio London repeat Liz Fraser's 'My London'

BBC Radio London have today aired a lovely tribute to the late Liz Fraser. Last year Liz, known for her lifetime in the very best of British film, television and stage, was interviewed as part of the "My London" series by Gary Crowley. I listened at the time and remember it as a great programme full of warmth, wit and nostalgia.

"My London" focuses on the memories of famous Londoners and what it was like to grow up in the country's capital. The hour long programme saw Liz remember her early life growing up in Southwark, south London in the 1930s, before the war years intervened. Liz was always good value as an interviewee, never one to shy away from telling it as it is!

Best known for her film comedy roles, Liz appeared in four Carry Ons - Regardless as Delia King, Cruising as Gladys Trimble, Cabby as Sally and finally Carry On Behind as Sylvia Ramsden. Other film roles included I'm All Right Jack, A Pair of Briefs, Two Way Stretch, The Americanisation of Emily and the big screen version of Dad's Army. On television Liz was seen in Citizen James, Hancock's Half Hour, Jason King, The Avengers, The Professionals, Foyle's War, Holby City and Last of the Summer Wine. 

In the programme Liz remembers her early film roles and working with the likes of Sid James, Tony Hancock, Peter Sellers and Roger Moore.
