Woman's Hour - 'Jenni'

A little slice of escapism

One would hope this is an ode to Jenni Murray, beloved stalwart of BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, who’s made a living grabbing slippery politicians by the short and curlies and making them squirm. Alas, it’s hard to imagine her sternly taking Thatcher to task over this breezy lull, but that doesn’t make ‘Jenni’ any less beguiling: it’s still a soft, calypso-infused slice of escapism that errs on the right side of fluffy.
