Written by Tony Jordan, this is the heartwarming story of Dame Barbara Windsor, the Cockney kid with a dazzling smile and talent to match.

Babs, ever the consummate professional, never lets her fans down whatever her personal anguish and steps on the stage to rapturous applause.

Can passenger experience manager Sue battle a cultural barrier in order to help him? Meanwhile, engineering apprentice Matt heads out onto the runway to calibrate the arrival lights and gets closer to a 747 than he ever thought possible.
