The World's Greatest Music
Classic FM took legendary broadcaster Joan Bakewell to the Red House in Aldeburgh to meet the women who knew composer Benjamin Britten best.
Britten rarely threw anything away and the whole of his extraordinary life is documented in detail at the new Red House archive. Manuscripts of more than 700 pieces of juvenilia and all the mature compositions; diaries, thousands of letters, photographs and recordings and countless other artefacts - including this musical instrument made of mugs for Noye's Fludde.
