Playhouse: Meeting Bea


[R4 BD=19940212]

In 1927, the children's author

Beatrix Potter was living the life of a recluse as Mrs Beatrix Heelis. The arrival at her Lake

District home of an American publisher and an admiring Lancashire mill girl brings back painful memories of an appalling childhood and youth.

Stephanie Cole stars as Beatrix Potter and Clive Swift as her husband William in this repeat of Eric Pringle 's play.
