Talking To

Carol Ackroyd

The political commentator and Guardian journalist comes from a long line of left-wing rabble-rousers who have railed against injustice. But coming from a prosperous life of academia or journalism, her family and her forebears were never working class. She shares the story of a fascinating family history set against a backdrop that contains everyone from the Glenconners to Jessica Mitford and Bertrand Russell, and the ancestral home Castle Howard, and talks about the myth of mobility, the guilt of privilege, and the rigidity of class in Britain.
