    Legacy... Margaret Thatcher

    Legacy... Margaret Thatcher
    Afua Hirsch and Peter Frankopan tell the wild stories of some of the most extraordinary men and women ever to have lived – and ask whether they have the reputation they deserve. Should Nina Simone’s role in the civil rights movement be more celebrated than it is? When you find out what Picasso got up to in his studio, can you still admire his art? And in their most recent series, they take a look at Margaret Thatcher. Was the Iron Lady an inspirational figure, or the architect of a broken Britain? Legacy is a scripted, structured podcast (detailing key scenes/moments of the subject’s life story e.g. Napoleon), balanced with free-flowing conversational pieces between the two hosts.
