Marjorie Anderson


Having read the news and presented the Forces Favourite request show during the Second World War, Anderson became an early presenter of Woman's Hour.
She maintained a sober, sincere and traditional approach without sounding patronising and endeared herself to listeners at a time when British broadcasting was primarily male dominated.

For many, her voice epitomised the BBC.
