The lives behind six legendary names - told by their biographers. 3: Florence Nightingale Written and presented by Philippa Stewart
The founder and inspiration of modem nursing, Florence Nightingale had to struggle until she was 33 to be allowed to do what she wanted. Heroine of the Crimean War, she became known the world over as the Lady with the Lamp.
In this programme, author PHILIPPA STEWART examines the many contradictions in the story of this extraordinary woman, bom with all the advantages of money, breeding and beauty, yet desperately unhappy for most of her life. She had a rational, scientific mind, yet was convinced she had been called by God. She was most attractive to men yet she never married and had perhaps her most profound relationships with women. Bedridden and considered on the verge of death at the age of 37. she lived to be 90.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
