Jenni Murray: A History of Britain in 21 Women - Monday 9 October

MurrayA History of Britain as you have never heard it before, through the achievements of twenty-one women whose lives enthral, intrigue and inspire.

Britain has been defined by its conflicts, its conquests, its men, and its monarchs. To say that it’s high time that it was defined by its women falls some way short of an understatement.

In this personal selection Jenni draws together the lives of twenty-one women to shed light on a variety of social, political, religious and cultural aspects of British history, reinvigorating the stories behind the names we all know and revealing the fascinating tales behind those less familiar.

Jenni is a journalist and broadcaster who has presented BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour since 1987. She regularly contributes to various newspapers and magazines and is the author of several books including The Memoirs of a Not So Dutiful Daughter.

Jan Ravens: A Difficult Woman - Saturday 14 October

RavensWho runs the world? Fifty-something women, apparently. Dead Ringers star, Jan Ravens takes to the road with her well-loved impressions of Theresa May, Nicola Sturgeon, Diane Abbott, Hillary Clinton and many others, including Kirsty Wark, Lyse Doucet and Fiona Bruce.

Why, she asks, are women perceived as ‘difficult’, when we are just being decisive, ambitious and tenacious? Well, come on, why? Jan has been seen, and contributed across the satirical spectrum, on shows such as Newsnight, The Daily Politics, Mock the Week, QI, Question Time, Today and PM.

A consummate impressionist -Times
Modern, topical, with a fresh satirical twist -Telegraph.
A brilliantly funny woman in her prime - Kirsty Wark
