About the Event

Dame Esther Rantzen, now eighty, has been on our television screens since the early seventies and has had an extraordinary career from 21 years on BBC’s That’s Life! to being the founder of the charities ChildLine and The Silver Line. We talk to Esther about her new Channel 5 documentary Living with Grief where she examines her own feelings of bereavement by enlisiting the help of six people who talk unflinchingly to her about their experiences of loss.

WFTV CEO, Katie Bailiff will be joining Esther and director Rebecca Burrell for a conversation about Esther’s personal journey during the making of Living with Grief. They’ll also be discussing Esther’s experience of being a woman working in television for half a century and the changes that she’s seen and been a part of, sharing what she’s learnt along the way.
