In 1965, Hannah Gavron – a 29-year-old, bright, sophisticated sociologist – gassed herself in a flat in Primrose Hill, north London. She left behind a suicide note, two small children, and an about-to-be-published manuscript: The Captive Wife.
Four decades later, her son Jeremy tries to piece together the events that led to her death.
Omnibus of Jeremy Gavron's book is dramatised by Sarah Daniels starring Dominic Mafham, Helen Clapp and James Bolam.
