Nancy Drew Turns 85

She is a permanently fresh-faced 18 year-old, solving mysteries in the small town of River Heights in the midwestern United States, but this week the Nancy Drew franchise turned the ripe old age of 85. What's the reason for Nancy Drew's enduring popularity? Jennifer Fisher is the president of the Nancy Drew Sleuths, the international fan club - and spoke to the BBC from Iowa City, where the organisation's annual convention was being held.
