with Rosemary Caldicott, Jane Duffus and Helen Wilde

Spanning almost 900 years from Princess Eleanor of Brittany (1184-1241), who was imprisoned in Bristol Castle for 39 years, to author Helen Dunmore, who died in 2017, Rosemary Caldicott, Jane Duffus and Helen Wilde discuss the women who helped to shape Bristol into the vibrant city it is today. From pin makers to police chiefs, from workhouse inmates to lord mayors, they show that Bristol was built by women, celebrating the less well-known women of our past as well as the key big names.
