Watch a Video Excerpt:

Introduced by Gregory Peck, the always modest and shy, Audrey Hepburn recounts her love of peace, children and her work with UNICEF as a Goodwill Ambassador.

The program includes her journeys to UNICEF’s missions in Bangladesh, Somalia and Viet Nam and it includes interviews with Larry King and her longtime friend, Robert Wolders. With great warmth and kindness, this compassionate woman speaks of her triumphs and disappointments throughout her life. Ms. Hepburn also expresses her deep satisfaction with being able to provide her service as a UNICEF Ambassador.

Included on this DVD is one 26-minute episode of Views on World Poverty.
Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, and less than a third of its population has access to any health care. Malnutrition remains the main cause of maternal and infant mortality and well over half of all pregnant women suffer from iron deficiency anemia. This program follows two traditional birth attendants as they try to persuade women to take iron folate supplements and visit hospitals, which is often prohibitively expensive. The program also visits Tanzania, where it is malaria that is blamed for the increase in anemia which, in some areas, affects 93 per cent of children under five.

  • Audrey Hepburn is one of the most generous celebrities I know. She is my role model as well as my mom’s. I love this quote from her… “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. ” -Hannah Lee

  • Dear Caroline,
    All of the DVDs sold by the Longtail Distribution Network are NTSC (the American TV-standard) and duplicated on high quality DVD-R media. Europe uses a different TV standard called PAL. However, the vast majority of DVD players in Europe will playback an NTSC DVD without issues. You should google the model number of your DVD player to see if it’s is compatible.

    If it will work, you can place an order via the ‘Add to Cart’ link on this website.

    Yours truly,

  • Caroline

    I would very much like to purchase the dvd Audrey Hepburn: In her own words. Before I purchase, however, could you tell me if it’s suitable for a dvd player in the UK?

    In hope and friendship,
