Pity poor Ken­neth Wil­liams, sat in his sparse, spot­less flat, strug­gling with painful piles. Ken­neth (Michael Sheen) was adored by the pub­lic but – as this 2006 biopic never lets us for­get – riven with self-doubt and ill­ness.

A parkin­son com­pi­la­tion of Ken­neth’s in­ter­views fol­lows.

Michael Sheen stars as Ken­neth Wil­liams
