Joss Ackland CBE was born in 1928 in London. Trained as an actor, he has appeared in more than 130 films, and countless theatre, alongside such luminaries as Judy Dench, Ingrid Bergman and Lauren Bacall. However, his first priority was always his wife Rosemary, and now their seven children and 33 grandchildren.
Featured on The Book Show on Sky Arts on 1 June 2010. "My Better Half and Me" weaves together Rosemary's diaries with Joss' commentary to tell of an extraordinary love-story that lasted over fifty years.
