Tern TV / BBC Production

John Sawoski recently played piano for a BBC-TV movie, “Donald Campbell: Speed King.” Using rare archive and first hand testimony from those who knew him intimately, this film explores the life of Donald Campbell, one of Britain’s most compelling but doomed heroes. In this clip, underscored with “Autumn Leaves” played by John Sawoski, Donald Campbell’s wife, Tonia Bern-Campbell, is introduced by her step-daughter Gina, then we see Tonia Campbell interviewed in 2012 in Los Angeles, interspersed with Tonia singing in a night club performance.
