BBC4 showed a documentary on her (and the family) last year and her mum was definitely instrumental in her issues of low self-esteem: she would pointedly withhold praise from her, instead heaping it on Richard even when it was her who had accomplished something. Horrible, hurtful woman - obviously had issues of her own.

Karen had an incredible voice; clear as a bell...
