From Judy Collins to Puccini. Barrister Helena Kennedy shares her castaway choices with Sue Lawley. From January 1998.
Sue Lawley's castaway is the QC Helena Kennedy.
In 1992 she published a book which drew attention to the way English law discriminates against women. She called it Eve was Framed. It began a debate into how we view defendants and victims and how our judges are trained.
Born into a working-class family living on the south side of Glasgow, she entered the House of Lords as a life peer, Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws, in 1997. She says her father, a newspaper packer and an active trade unionist, would have been 'amused but proud'.
Producer: Angie Nehring.
First heard on BBC Radio 4 in January 1998.
