Episode Summary

EDIT
The Secret Diaries of Miss Anne Lister
AIRED:
This bold and passionate drama tells the story of Anne Lister, 1791-1840, a Yorkshire landowner, industrialist, traveler and diarist. She was a lesbian, who, despite needing to keep her orientation secret from society at large, in private defied the conventions of her times by living with her female lover. Anne kept a detailed account of her life, her loves and her emotions in a fascinating and painfully honest 4,000,000-word journal. A sizable portion was written in code, and the recent deciphering of the diaries provides an astonishing insight into the life of the woman who has been called Britain's first modern lesbian. Starring Maxine Peake.moreless
