The Word Girl

From Mary to Matilda, Lydia to Laura, and Oriana all the way to a boy named Sue, the weekly sequence of music and verse makes play with the words we use to name the female sex. Readings include verse by Petrarch, Lorca, DH Lawrence, John Clare and Elizabeth Barrett-Browning - plus the odd limerick.

First broadcast in October 2011.
