    Private Passions

    I know this programme has come in for a bit of stick recently on one or other of the threads but I found today's very enjoyable. While the music may have been a mixed bag, though none of it intrinsically unwelcome, I thought Lucy Worsley came over extraordinarily well and probably could (and indeed nearly did) run rings around her interviewer. I am of course a fan and may be biased but more guests of that calibre everywhere might convert me to guest spots .... might!

        Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces apparently - no, I didn't know either. I do recall having seen her on some TV programme or other.

          With that surname I wondered if she's any kin to the Duchess of Kent?

                    I've never had a problem with 'Private Passions' - together with the very different Early Music Show, it makes for 2 hours' enjoyable and often informative listening. I certainly enjoyed today's 'PP'.

                      Never mind the Duchess of Kent, is she any relative of Britain's Finest Ventriloquist?

                      I think we should be told!

                      Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

                          Wouldn't be hard. MB increasingly sounds like he has a hard job being interested in his guests or even staying awake.

                            and it follows quite nicely from desert Island Discs on r4 ... i am told
