The love affair between British speed king Donald Campbell and vivacious singer Tonia Bern was one of the great romances of the twentieth century. But passion turned to tragedy with the dramatic death of Campbell on Coniston Water in January 1967 as he attempted to break the world water speed record in his famous jet boat, Bluebird.
In this portrait of her love affair with and marriage to Campbell, Tonia tells the inside story of her heady life with Britain’s national land and water speed hero. The collision between the two worlds of the 1960s jet-set and show-biz promised a fast and furious ride, but their volcanic marriage and the pressures of trying to combine two high-profile careers sometimes took their toll on the relationship.
