The Woman's Hour Archive Collection

Jenni Murray presents highlights from the new Woman's Hour online archive, outstanding women from sixty three years of the programme. From a young Mary Quant and Judi Dench, to Marguerite Patten, Winnie Mandela, Nina Simone and Hillary Clinton. Jenni and her guest, Sue MacGregor, discuss their memories of presenting the programme. Sue recalls drinking gin with Bette Davis and borrowing Margaret Thatcher's heated rollers and you can hear Jenni's interview with Mrs Thatcher which one reviewer described as 'the only time ever my radio had frozen over'.
