A programme based on the diaries and books of Miss C. F. Gordon Cumming , who travelled round the world at a time when most Victorian women were confined to the drawing room.
Marjorie Westbury as Miss Gordon Cumming
Narrator Christopher Venning ' How to proceed with the mysteries of a morning toilette was really a serious consideration with all these Indian bearers flitting about.... Before I was half dressed, in came another relay and stood salaaming in solemn silence, waiting for orders, which, of course, I was unable to give, so could only stare at them admiringly.'
