Presented by Jenni Murray. June Spencer is 'Peggy' in The Archers, a role she has played for almost 60 years. Now 91, she joins Jenni to talk of her life both real and in Ambridge. The Archers abounds with matriarchs, so what is their history and role in society? Elish Angiolini was Scotland's first female Lord Advocate. As she leaves her post, she looks back on four years in office. And, Marina Abramovic has been called the "grande dame" of radical performance art. With her latest show about to open in London, she talks about a career that has taken her from Belgrade to New York and beyond.
