A unique portrait featuring extracts from Kenneth Williams' diaries and archive clips

' At times, Benson sounds uncannily like Williams ' The Independent on Sunday

In a specially extended version of the radio series first broadcast on BBC Radio 4. David Benson , who won acclaim for his portrayal of Kenneth Williams in his one-man show, reads extracts from the actor's famous diaries, whilst archive clips show the versatility of Williams the performer.

Whether he was a sad, self-obsessed man or a tortured comic genius, Williams had a unique talent. Yet his hugely successful career in theatre, film, radio and television often seems at odds with his stated loathing of himself, his work and those around him.

Benson's portrayal of this sensitive and secretive man reveals Williams' predictable poisonous lows as well as his lesser-known emotional highs.

With even more readings and clips than originally transmitted - from Round the Horne , Beyond Our Ken and others - this portrait of the much-loved comedy actor succeeds in making a very private world a little more public.
