Ronnie and Reggie Kray remain two of the most infamous criminals in British history. Legends to many, their fame was built on a fearsome reputation and almost mythical celebrity-like status, but who were the real Kray twins? Viewed by the public as charming East End nightclub owners, their reputations were a stark contrast to their real lives. On the surface, they were mixing with celebrities and Lords but behind closed doors they were leading sordid personal lives and orchestrating heinous crimes. Public opinion was split but how were the twins viewed by their contemporaries? This is the inside story of the Krays, told by the people who stood by their side for all those years. Featuring authentic audio recordings of Reggie Kray from prison. Interviews with the twins closest allies and bitter rivals, including some of the final interviews with Frank Fraser, Albert Donoghue, Lenny Hamilton and Billy Frost all of whom are no longer alive. New revelations about the twins private lives from close friends of the family. No fluff, no reconstructions, no actors. Narrated by Martin Kemp, who played Reggie to critical acclaim in the 1990 movie The Krays and is currently enjoying renewed popularity as a judge on the BBC s Let It Shine. The story of the Krays is as popular now as it ever was. Younger generations were introduced to them through the movie Legend in 2015 and are now keen to learn the real facts.

If Lon Chaney will forever be recognized as 'The Man with 1,000 Faces', Jackie Gleason holds a legitimate claim to being 'The Man with 1,000 Personas.' Indeed, during his time hosting The Jackie Gleason Show on television, he developed numerous alter egos, including tough guy Rudy the Repairman, the energetic Joe the Bartender, and the alcoholic Rum Dum. Physically, there was no mistaking Jackie Gleason (the way one certainly could with Lon Chaney), but Gleason also possessed an uncanny ability to alternate between personas. In the years before the Rat Pack made the nightclub lifestyle chic and glamorous on a national scale, Jackie Gleason presided as perhaps the foremost nightclub figure in America, and nobody excelled at situation comedy as well as he. Paradoxically, the iconic element of Jackie Gleason's persona was that he was able to maintain so many personas simultaneously. In a sense, each of these characters bears traces of the "real" Jackie Gleason. But the fact remains that the many personas of Jackie Gleason make it difficult to figure out exactly who Jackie Gleason actually was beneath his show business facades. 1. Language: English.
