Born in Belgium on 23-3-1932 to Polish Jewish parents and hidden in France
during the 1940-1945 Nazi German occupation, Bettine Le Beau married at the
age of 20 in London where she had settled. Dissatisfied with being a
housewife, she used her potentials and zest for life in moving into Film, TV
and Radio. Her film credits include Dr No and Riviera Touch, she was a
regular in the Benny Hill Show, Morecambe & Wise and Norman Wisdom and
spent many years on the radio panel games Animal, Vegetable or Mineral and
Petticoat Line amongst others.
Motivated by the desire to help others, Bettine wrote and published her first book HELP YOURSELF TO HAPPINESS and donated all proceeds to the Nightingale, a Jewish Residential Home. She founded the Feminine Touch in opposition to the strident Women’s Lib. It served as platform to raise money for the Ben Gurion University of the Negev. She also started a business in Israel, The House of Bettine Le Beau, marketing women’s cosmetics using unique ingredients found only in the Dead Sea. During time spent in Israel, Bettine appeared in the 13th Annual Yiddish Festival as well as appearing in Film, TV and radio.
Add to these achievements a talent for presenting ideas and the ability to communicate, it’s easy to see why Bettine Le Beau is in great demand today for her talks and lectures. Her lifelong interests of philosophy and psychology, her thoughts on happiness, self esteem, positive thinking and humour have found their way in HIDE AND SEEK an autobiographical Holocaust school book.
