Benjamin Britten's Women - Gallery
In the beautiful setting of the Red House, surrounded by Britten and Pears' extraordinary art collection, Joan Bakewell spoke to four women who were close to the composer. "Personally, I have many fond memories of spending time there as a member of the Aldeburgh festival board," said Joan Bakewell, "and it was lovely to return to speak to these women who knew Ben and Peter so well."
