Summary
Whatever your opinion of Billy Connolly, his life has been an epic tale of controversy and hilarity, tragedy and comedy. From his working class roots in Glasgow he has worked his way to the top, and now enjoys huge worldwide acclaim and lives a dream lifestyle. From welding to folk singing to comedy to writing to acting, Billy has proved beyond doubt his versatility and sheer determination. And if anyone knows that better than him, it's his wife, Pamela, who gives us an insider's view of this talented musician, singer, TV presenter, comedian and actor. We hear about the highs and the lows, the good times and the bad and she takes us behind the scenes of the films and TV shows he has been in and the sell-out tours that are so unmissable so that we get to see something of the real Billy Connolly
