Aung San Suu Kyi's extraordinary life as a quiet prisoner in her own country is the subject of this Radio 4 special programme presented by Mike Wooldridge. Mike hears from her friends and colleagues who speak frankly about her experience and how she has kept her spirit alive after so many years in isolation fighting for democracy. We are rebroadcasting the programme tonight at 11pm following the Burmese elections and speculation about her future.
Gwyneth Williams is Controller of BBC Radio 4 and Radio 7
