Bil­ly­con­nolly: Por­trait of a Life­time

TV Times - - Saturday -

Doc­u­men­tary / times vary / BBC2

in novem­ber, Billy con­nolly turns 75. To mark his birth­day, BBC Scot­land com­mis­sioned three Scot­tish artists – John Byrne, Jack Vet­tri­ano and Rachel Maclean – to cre­ate por­traits of the much-loved co­me­dian. This in­ti­mate doc­u­men­tary (first shown on BBC1 Scot­land in June) shows Billy in con­ver­sa­tion with each artist and, as they cap­ture his like­ness for posterity, he talks about his 50-year ca­reer, from his early days as a mu­si­cian to cur­rent sta­tus as na­tional trea­sure.
