Interview with OB producer of Woman’s Hour

We were delighted to welcome Old Bedalian and Producer of Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Lucinda Montefiore, back to the school recently to talk to students at Civics. While here, Lucinda was interviewed by 6.2 student Nell Whittaker about joining Bedales in 1975 and her time here, as well as feminism and her job at the BBC. “Having previously attended a conservative all-girls school, coming to Bedales was venturing into the unknown. ‘It was, above all, exciting,’ says Lucinda. ‘Suddenly, here were people I wanted to talk to and teachers who were hugely inspiring. It felt like the right place. The people here were interested in reading, books, ideas’.” Read the full interview.
