Woman of Today : An Autobiography
Sue MacGregor was, until 2002, the hugely popular presenter of BBC Radio 4's Today programme, dispatching politicians and captains of industry with a honey-coated scalpel. Its longest-serving interviewer - and the only woman on the team - she had been at the forefront of top-level journalism for nearly four decades. An accomplished writer, with a wry sense of humour, Sue MacGregor reveals what went on behind the scenes in Radio's hotest news studios. Her story, from early life in South Africa to some of the top jobs in BBC Radio, including fifteen years on Woman's Hour, covers the dramatic changes she saw in South Africa, women's issues, her years with BBC Radio and shares elements of her private life.
