Grimston and Duveen consider the ripples and leadership then and now along with the urgent recovery of Grenfell Towers (as we went to air the Camden (evacuations were underway). Fictive Dream tonight tackles an all -too -common trauma for women head-on in an evocative reading of Anne Goodwin's story by Lily Lowe-Myers. We then meet commssioning editor Laura Black who looks at the craft abnd state of the art as FD reaches its 100th post, which we broadcast on Sunday. Podgers' Corner considers a classic by Richard Rodgers which formed the very first general release LP just after WW2.
