Archive On 4 – Meeting Myself Coming Back Ep 3/3

Saturday 28 August
8.00-9.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Janet Street-Porter relives key moments in her life and career through the BBC sound archives, in conversation with John Wilson.

Janet's career has been bound up with media from her earliest days writing for newspapers and then as a young presenter on LBC Radio.

Her distinctive voice and looks have been parodied over the decades and she has often been vilified in the press for taking television downmarket. Her attempt to launch Live TV ended with her resignation after only a few months. However, she has always bounced back in another guise, as a newspaper editor, a TV personality and a rambler.

In this programme, Janet re-examines her past life and meets her younger self, analysing how she's changed and developed over the decades.
