Naomi Campbell Documentary to Air in the UK Next Wednesday

Next Wednesday a documentary-slash-in-depth-interview about Naomi Campbell will premiere on the UK's CNBC (it won't air in the United States until 5:30 p.m. October 1st). The 30-minute program will feature Campbell's childhood and upbringing in South London, her rise to supermodel-dom, and how she's now heavily engaged in charity work, including Fashion For Relief.

Also interviewed for the documentary are Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes—who were, at time of filming, shooting a music video featuring Campbell—and producer Quincy Jones, who's been a longtime mentor to the model. The program also touches on Campbell's relationships with Bob Marley and Nelson Mandela.
