In a career that has spanned decades, Helen Mirren’s small-screen roles have helped make her a global star and won her many awards. The BFI & Radio Times Television Festival is proud to induct her into the Radio Times Hall of Fame.
Soon to be seen in Sky Atlantic’s epic new drama Catherine the Great, she has had an exceptional career. As a young star fresh from the RSC she played opposite Laurence Olivier in the BBC’s adaptation of Harold Pinter’s The Collection and later appeared in Dennis Potter’s Blue Remembered Hills. But it was as DCI Jane Tennison in Prime Suspect that she became a household name. Written by Lynda La Plante it spawned six series, before Helen reprised the role in 2006 – for which she won an Emmy to add to the Emmy and Golden Globe she won playing Elizabeth I.
Exclusive footage of Helen’s latest role as Catherine the Great will be shown at what promises to be a fascinating insight into her stellar career. Join us to celebrate her life on screen, in a fitting climax to the BFI & Radio Times Television Festival 2019.
