Description: A warm, wise and witty celebration of the 60th anniversary of BBC Woman's Hour. Contributors include Jenni Murray, Sue MacGregor and Martha Kearney
Synopsis: Woman's Hour is one of Britain's greatest national institutions, entertaining millions of women (and men) since its first broadcast on 7 October 1946. For sixty years, the programme has championed the woman's perspective on topics such as health, education, family and home, work, sex, arts, fashion, international affairs and politics. From celebrity interviews to ordinary listeners who were invited to tell their personal stories on air, Woman's Hour has charted the changing status of women throughout the latter twentieth century and into the twenty-first. Now, for the first time, this book brings together many of these interviews, reflecting the passage of the decades through the unique voices of those who have taken part. Highlights include presenter Jill Allgood interviewing Joyce Grenfell in her own home in the post-war years, to Ailsa Garland discussing hair and fashion with Cilla Black in the swinging sixties; Germaine Greer and Kate Millet advocating a women's movement in the 1970s; the Thatcher years of the 1980s; Nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu Kyi campaigning for Burmese democracy in 1996, and Sharon Osbourne talking parenthood and cosmetic surgery in 2005.Woman's Hour: From Joyce Grenfell to Sharon Osbourne tells a vivid and personal history through the voices of its guests, and provides a thrilling insight into how the programme has inspired, set the agenda and brought women together over six fascinating decades.
