October 7, 1946 in England was the start of something big - it was the first broadcast of a radio program designed to celebrate, entertain and inform women. Woman's Hour now attracts an audience of some 2.7 million people.
When I lived in London, I tried to listen to Woman's Hour daily on BBC Radio 4 . Upon my return to the States, I was elated to discover that I could still listen - via the internet.
I invite you to visit the Woman's Hour website to search through their current (and past) programming. In the meantime, here is a lovely interview from 2006 with Jane Pettigrew on the subject of none other than ..... Afternoon Tea.
