Twice Removed Series 2 Episode 5
Anne Lister, a diarist, shot to fame when she became the subject of the brilliant BBC Drama Gentleman Jack. Anne was played by Suranne Jones and I think half the nation fell in love with this vivacious character. I know I did! But who was the real Anne Lister? What can her diaries, which famously recorded her intimate relationships with women tell us? What else did she record and why are her diaries so important?
Livia Labate and Amanda Pryce from the incredible Packed With Potential Project explain all!
