Incredible Women, Series 1-6

Audiobook

Rebecca Front and Jeremy Front star in this series of spoof documentaries looking at the lives of some extraordinary and unforgettable characters.

We meet some truly remarkable women, such as controversial children's writer and wolf enthusiast Eleanor Fane-Gore; 'Media Integrity Czar' Valerie Panther; MI5 whistle-blower Helen McKee; fashion guru Tish Watts; child star Mandy Fenwick; Irina Stonkus, soon to be the first woman on Mars; and National Treasure Dame Cicely Leyland.

In each programme our less-than-intrepid interviewer Jeremy spends one night in the home of each of his interviewees. On their territory, he asks about their personal histories, plus we discover some very odd things about the way they live their daily lives.

The interviews with each of these weird and wonderful characters is interspersed with interviews with real-life famous folk who have been 'affected' by them in one way or another. Guests including Eamonn Holmes, Joanna Lumley, Clare Balding, Janet Street-Porter, Barbara Windsor, Andy Hamilton, Joe Lycett and Jeremy Paxman attempt to throw light upon the woman in question.

'Incredible Women has a warmth and charm that keeps you listening, as well as lovely writing, so give it a go.' The Observer

'This is not just good, it's excellent and shows that quality writing can transform radio comedy into something that's laugh-out-loud funny.' Radio Times
