Mr Pepys's Diary

Clarissa Dickson Wright, Tony Benn and Sir Richard Eyre join Claire Tomalin and other Pepys devotees to bring you the sensuous and extraordinary world of his diaries. Gourmet tastes mingle with adulterous liaisons, naval bureaucracy and the Great Fire, as Pepys records his detailed observations of London society. The documentary explores how this first great English diary continues to chime with modern readers' lives.
