Ilona Domnich, Tess Hadley, Kate Green MP
Jane Garvey's guests are opera singer Ilona Domnich, author Tessa Hadley and Kate Green MP. Plus what is it like being lesbian and living in more rural areas?
Opera soprano Ilona Domnich sings live and tells us how her love for forensic science and detective mysteries helps her develop the roles of her operatic characters. Author Tessa Hadley talks to Jane about her sixth book The Past, and why she finds writing about family relationships and histories so fascinating. Kate Green MP, the new shadow minister for equalities, on her new role, the commitment to women's representation in the Labour Party under the new leader, and how shadow cabinet meetings feel with 16 women in them. Jacqui Best and Ruth Fowler discuss their experience of being lesbian in more rural areas and whether they encounter prejudices not faced by members of the LGBTQ community living in cities.
