Regarded by many as the greatest actor of the 20th Century, Laurence Olivier enjoyed a career in film, theatre and television, winning multiple awards along the way from the 1920s to the 1980s. In this fascinating collection of archive interviews he discusses his schooldays and early acting career; his drama training; his spells as actor-manager running the Old Vic and the National Theatre (which he helped create); his wartime service, and his friendship and collaboration with fellow actors including John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson. BBC Archive Voices features interviews with some of the key figures from the fields of entertainment, sport, politics and literature many of which haven't been heard since their original transmission. With access to the entire archive of BBC Radio and television, we can now witness some of the most lively, entertaining and informative encounters in BBC broadcasting. Due to the age and nature of this archive material, the sound quality may vary.
