Ahead of her 80th birthday, John Wilson travels to Oxfordshire to the home of Peggy Seeger, the American musician who, along with her husband Ewan MacColl, led the folk revival movement of the 1950s and '60s. In an intimate conversation, the musician reflects on a life born in to the folk tradition, a childhood spent in the company of Woody Guthrie and Leadbelly, her relationship with MacColl, and why she is still writing songs of protest, including one she hopes will save her local swimming pool. Producer: Craig Templeton Smith.
