Babs is a one-off BBC biopic film about the life of British actress Barbara Windsor.  The story will chronicle her life and career from 1943 through to 1993.  As she contemplates her lonely childhood and WWII evacuation, it will detail her decision to go from Barbara Ann Deeks to Barbara Windsor – inspired by the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.  It will also tell the tale of her complicated relationship with her father, her doomed marriage to Ronnie Knight, capturing the attention of Joan Littlewood and becoming the blonde bombshell in the Carry-On films.
