  • 2001-07-31T01:00:00+02:00 — 50 mins

Controversial celebrities of the 20th century. Jazz singer Billie Holiday is remembered today for her turbulent personal life as much as for her artistic achievements - addicted to drink, drugs and abusive men, the enduring image is of a tragic victim. However, archive footage and interviews with friends reveal a different Lady Day - a strong woman, determined to satisfy her voracious appetite for sex, drugs and music.
