Joan Bakewell was born in 1933, in on era when most women were expected to marry, have children and stay at home. She was determined to do more. She became a wife and mother, but also one of the first women journalists on television. The programme ‘Late Night Line Up’ made her a sixties icon and, with series such as ‘Heart of the Matter’, she has remained an influential presence on our screens ever since. In this searching, intimate account of her life, she retraces the paths she has taken and reveals what lay behind the public image and the choices she made.”
