01The Bankers20180807

Lauren Laverne meets three former bankers and discovers where they ended up.

Lauren Laverne follows the lives of people who spent an intense period of time together.

Lauren Laverne meets three people who started life as bankers, part of the graduate intake for a leading merchant bank back in 1987 and discovers where they ended up.

In October 1987 Edward Heckles; Gill Meekison and Richard Symes started work at Kleinwort Benson, a leading merchant bank, as part of its graduate trainee scheme.

Back then they enjoyed a high octane working environment and thrived in the hothouse of high finance. Today one of them is a teacher; one a health campaigner and the third has spent their entire career at the same bank.

In this programme they reminisce about the heady days of the City in the 1980s and ruminate on how their lives unfolded. Have their personal ups and downs left them philosophical and rueful or happy and fulfilled?

01The Nuns20180814

Lauren Laverne meets three women who trained to become nuns in the 1970s.

Lauren Laverne follows the lives of people who spent an intense period of time together.

Lauren Laverne meets three women who trained to become nuns at St Mary's Convent, Ascot in the 1970s.

In December 1972, shortly before Christmas, Stephanie de Laszlo entered the Novitiate of St Mary's Convent in Ascot. She was to be joined by Jane Livesey and Anna Brennan - three young women embarking on a life of contemplation and prayer within the Congregation of Jesus.

But their lives did not all follow that quiet path - since then two of the women have left the Congregation, while the third became its worldwide leader. Today one of the three is a lawyer and one joined the police force before becoming a member of an enclosed community of Benedictine nuns. Which of them chose to leave religious life altogether and why did one go back after several years on the outside?

In this programme the women speak about their faith with clarity and wry humour. They look back on the decision they made to enter religious life and how their resolve was tested in the intervening years. They reflect on the challenges they experienced both inside and outside the convent and how they negotiated the forks in the road along the way to personal understanding and contentment.

Lauren Laverne follows the lives of people who spent an intense period of time together.

Broadcaster Lauren Laverne meets three men who trained as refrigeration and air conditioning engineers at Eastleigh Technical College in Hampshire in 1977 and finds out the surprising turns their lives have taken.

In 1977 when punk was at its height three teenagers - Nick Petford, John Russell-Sanders and Dave Coombs - sat down to start their City and Guilds course in refrigeration and air conditioning at Eastleigh Technical College in Hampshire.

The year long vocational course was designed to produce engineers who would go on to design, install and maintain cooling systems. But Nick, John and Dave had other plans. Today one of them is a university vice-chancellor and an expert in volcanology; one a photographer whose images have appeared on the front pages of national newspapers and one a teacher and carpenter who has created work for Windsor Castle and Salisbury Cathedral. How did they leave the welding and brazing behind and find their true vocations 40 years on?

In this programme the three look back in wonder at what happened to them in the intervening years. They reflect on the choices they made and how they surpassed the expectations of their parents and teachers.

0101The Drama Students20180731

Lauren Laverne discovers what happened to three drama students who gave it their all.

Lauren Laverne follows the lives of people who spent an intense period of time together.

As John Lennon once wrote 'life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans'. In this four-part series broadcaster Lauren Laverne follows the twists and turns in the lives of three people who spent an intense period of time together and then went their separate ways. Where did they end up and what took them there? Did early promise turn into a stellar career or did life take a different turn?

Lauren hears how these lives unfolded; the successes and tragedies that form the backdrop of their stories; the incidents that prompted them to change direction and the moving and surprising conclusions they've come to as they look back on their younger selves.

In this first edition Lauren meets three former students who studied acting at the Poor School drama college in 1993. Today one of them is the deputy principal of a performing arts school; one a personal stylist and one an advocate for children in care. But who became who, and how did they get there? They recall with humour and sadness. the fickle and unforgiving world of professional acting.
