- Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics plus interview
- Natalie Hanes joins Cariad Lloyd in the Comedy of the Week studio to talk about running away to the library, finding your niche and ancient women's rights. Join Natalie and guests for half an hour of comedy and the Classics from the BBC Radio Theatre in London. Natalie is a reformed comedian who is a little bit obsessive about Ancient Greece and Rome. Today she stands up in the name of Greek poet, Sappho, about whom we know so little, and most of what we think we know is made-up. But one thing is certain: her poetry is scorching, and unforgettable. There will also be a lot of gossip from over a thousand years ago. With special guests novelist Stella Duffy, classicist Professor Edith Hall and music from LiTTLe MACHiNe. Producer...Mary Ward-Lowery.
