Seasons in Detail


Endell Street

Jessica Raine reads from Wendy Moore's account of trailblazing doctors Louisa Garrett Anderson and Flora Murray, who set up three military hospitals during the First World War. Anderson and Murray demonstrated, along with their staff of women surgeons, nurses and orderlies, that they were supremely capable in so many fields of medicine, but when the war ended, their achievements were once again side-lined, and their story forgotten.
