News BBC One celebrate Eastender’s legend June Brown’s 90th birthday with special doco Published 2 years ago on January 31, 2017 With June Brown’s 90th birthday on the horizon BBC One will screen a special half hour documentary next month to coincide with her big day. BBC One announce special documentary, June Brown At 90 – A Walford Legend, on EastEnders’ June Brown to celebrate the star’s 90th birthday “Give us a tea, Lofty. And a glass of water so I can take a Paracetamol.” Those were the first words June Brown ever uttered as Dot Cotton, and they would prove to be a turning point in EastEnders’ history. Celebrating a milestone birthday, June Brown At 90 – A Walford Legend, spends half an hour in the company of one of Albert Square’s most beloved actors, as she talks about her life and career. From her early days in theatre, to the reason she believes she was cast in the role of Dot, June Brown’s views on almost everything are both surprising and entertaining. June talks of how, in the early days, she was seen as a rival by a fellow cast member, and how she coaxed more out of her character than just being a hypochondriac (“I loved it when Dot went hysterical”). She also reveals the effect Dorothy Branning has had on her life and the opportunities it has given her, from Bafta nominations to revealing all in Calendar Girls. But who is June Brown? And how similar is she to her EastEnders’ character? Funny, eccentric and straight talking, while Dot might be often impersonated, June Brown is unique. Executive Producer Caroline Wright says: “June Brown is a one-off, a genuine national treasure. It’s been a privilege to be given the chance to capture her magic.” Featuring contributions from many Walford regulars (Danny Dyer, Adam Woodyatt, Gillian Taylforth, Rudolph Walker, Lacey Turner and Natalie Cassidy) all of whom pay tribute to their unique colleague. Commissioned by Charlotte Moore and Pinki Chambers for BBC One, and made by BBC Studios, the Executive Producer is Caroline Wright and the Producer, Matt Taylor.
