Series 3, Episode 1 - Floella Benjamin
Floella talks about her life and career including how her supremely happy childhood in Trinidad turned to unhappiness when her parents left her with a cruel foster family; the joy of being reunited with her mother and father when she came to England; learning to overcome racism with a smile; the freedom that came with passing her driving test and why when she became a peer she chose Baroness of Beckenham as her title.
