Composer Judith Weir talks about her role as Master of the Queen’s Music and we look back at the feminist controversies of the year with Naomi Alderman. Plus, a new film tells the story of the First World War through the eyes of a young woman. Testament of Youth is an adaptation of Vera Brittain’s memoir of the devastating effect which the conflict had on her life and on the youth of her contemporaries. We hear from some of those involved in bringing Vera Brittain’s story to life.
