„Jan­ice Turn­er nom­i­nates Enid Bly­ton for giv­ing her a sense of adven­ture when she was a child.
Jan­ice Turn­er recent­ly wrote a sweet, sen­si­tive arti­cle about pack­ing up the con­tents of her parent’s house. “The expe­ri­ence was almost unbear­able,” she began. Among the items passed down from the attic, “my entire child­hood,” were a heavy sledge, Twin­kle and Jack­ie annu­als, “and a heavy trunk of 60 Enid Bly­tons.”
60 Enid Bly­tons – imag­ine that!
Jan­ice Turn­er aka @victoriapeckham and win­ner of press inter­view­er of the year, is nom­i­nat­ing Enid Bly­ton in a pro­gramme filled scan­dal, racism and love­ly archive. Bly­ton was reject­ed in 2019 from a com­mem­o­ra­tive coin because of the con­tro­ver­sy that con­tin­ues to swirl around her work .… which include The Famous Five, the Secret Sev­en, and 24 books about Nod­dy.
The pro­gramme includes the biog­ra­ph­er Nadia Cohen, the pre­sen­ter Matthew Par­ris, and the pro­duc­er Miles Warde.“
