The Von Trapps
This morning's guests are The von Trapps – four great grandchildren of Captain and Maria von Trapp whose story is told in the 1965 film “The Sound of Music”. The von Trapp family left Austria just before the outbreak of the second world war and settled in Vermont, USA. Seventy-five years on, Sofi, Melanie, Amanda and August von Trapp, are touring the world with their own take on the von Trapp family musical legacy. Tomorrow they release their album “Dream A Little Dream”, a collaboration with the band Pink Martini.
Yesterday the 20th anniversary of the ordination of women priests in the Church of England was celebrated at St Paul's Cathedral.
Julia Ogilvy is a writer and elder in the Church of Scotland and has interviewed twelve prominent Christian women about their experiences at the heart of the church.
Women in Waiting: Prejudice at the Heart of the Church by Julia Ogilvy is published by Bloomsbury.
