Margot Fonteyn is widely considered to be the nation's greatest ever dancer, yet her life story is as tragic as it is inspiring.

Among the ballets featured are: 'Romeo and Juliet', 'Swan Lake', 'Giselle', 'The Sleeping Beauty', 'Marguerite and Armand', and 'The Nutcracker'.


With a live introduction from director Tony Palmer.
