PBS International has taken the distribution rights to The 50 Year Party: London, Glamour and Royalty at Annabel’s (pictured) from LA-based prodco RSA Films and executive producer Ridley Scott.

Highlighting a mix of Hollywood stars, royalty, fashion icons and music performances over the last 50 years, the film is set to offer a glimpse into Annabel’s – a first-class culinary and entertainment institution in London’s West End – and its founder Mark Birley.

The documentary, which is slated to premiere on BBC4, will provide firsthand accounts and exclusive commentary from a raft of celebrities, including Anna Wintour, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Goldie Hawn and Lady Gaga.

“Annabel’s is synonymous with one of the most fun and iconic periods in London’s history,” said executive producer Ridley Scott in a statement. “I think we have shone a light into what was at the heart of London’s nightlife for the past 50 years and look forward to audiences everywhere having the opportunity to enjoy the world of Annabel’s as much as we did.”
