The first of two documentaries celebrating the life and work of explorer and woman of letters Dame Freya Stark, who died last month.
Freya Stark in Italy
For Omnibus in 1982, fellow writer and personal friend John Julius Norwich visited 90-year-old Dame Freya at her family home in the hills north of Venice.
She recalled her bohemian childhood and looked back at her greatest achievements, notably her first long trek into Persia and her mapping of the uncharted territory of the Valley of the Assassins. Stark was the second European woman to venture there, and the first to survive the journey. Her taste for European fashion was also on display: her house was stuffed with the exotic spoils of her many expeditions in the near and middle East.
Extracts from Dame Freya's work are read by Maria Aitken. Director David Cheshire
(Through Syria with Dame Freya Stark, tomorrow8.00pm)

Director George Stevens Jr
