As a teenager Sally Trench went to live among and care for the meths-drinkers on the London bombsites, the ultimate outcasts of the Welfare State. Eventually she left them to go to University and to marry; then she visited America and chose to spend her time there, too with the outcasts of the Great Society: the slum-dwellers of Harlem and the derelicts of Skid Row.
In this conversation with LESLIE SMITH she talks about her experiences

Second of two programmes in which Miriam Karlin reads from the letters of the Duchess of Orleans, the German wife of ' Monsieur,' younger brother of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Compiled by TERENCE COOPER Introduced by CORMAC RIGBY
Throughout her 50 years at the French Court this tough and witty German Princess was known by the grand title of ' Madame.' Her letters are among the most extraordinary documents about European Court life in existence.
' I am sure that you have not as many wrinkles as I have ... but they don'worry me in the least. Since I have never been beautiful I have not lost much. Madame de Montespan has a skin like a piece of paper that children have played with, folding and unfolding it.'
