Regional Variations (2)

"How can you govern a country that makes 390 different cheeses?" (De Gaulle)

We are planning to join them - but what are they really like? Are the jokes and the legends true? The pattern of life in France is unknown to many of us. This series visits seven places in France - each revealing different aspects of a strange, beautiful country and its people.

It's called "the land where the stomach is king", "a place where ambition is aimed at the table": Perigord - the home of truffles, walnuts, geese - and men who are equal to them.

During the early 1900s, a young actress Hope Hillier toured London and the provinces. She later married into the racing world and became the power and controlling force behind Aintree Racecourse and the Grand National Steeple-chase. Today, 80 and still as dominant as ever, Mirabel Topham can look back over decades of clashes with the racing world and arguments with broadcasters.
