Winifred Holtby this week on BBC Radio 7.

South Riding—the major novel by the pride of Hull, Winifred Holtby, and once filmed with Ralph Richardson—is featured this week on BBC Radio 7; go here for the schedule. The talented journalist and feminist Holtby, whose life was cut short by Bright's Disease in 1935, is the subject of a biography, Testament of Friendship, by her great friend, Vera Brittain.
