Monday - Broadcast 11AM London Time

FEB. 28 - PART TWO - Same Time

"An exclusive look into Charlie Chaplin's life through his personal archives. Some of this material has never been revealed before so it's a wonderful opportunity for the Radio 4 audience. Writer, broadcaster and film buff Matthew Sweet travels to Vevey in Switzerland where he meets Chaplin's son, Michael, to explore the house and get unprecedented access to some of the amazing revelations of the archive. We hear recordings of Chaplin composing and Michael Chaplin shows Matthew a document, found in a locked drawer after his death, which could lead experts to revise one of the most basic assumptions made about his famous father." - BBC 4 Radio

What was in the revelatory document?

Good question, Paul. Maybe for people who haven't spent much time reading or researching Chaplin.
