Hayley Atwell - Television - Fear of Fanny

Originally aired Monday 23 October 2006, BBC4

Synopsis from the official website:

Before Delia or Nigella, the distaff side of British TV cookery was dominated by one person: the fearsome Fanny Cradock. Dressed like a drag queen and barking orders at her assistant-cum-husband Johnnie, Cradock terrified and delighted the nation in equal measure from the 1950s to the mid-70s.

Brian Fillis's dramatisation of Cradock's career is based on interviews with her friends and family, and reveals the private vulnerability behind her tart public persona.
