Notable: Lord of the Rings/Josephine Baker

Having spent lockdown three tirelessly researching some of the best stories from four hundred years of musical history, Elizabeth and Stuart return with Series Two of Notable to share them with you. In this first episode, Elizabeth tells the tale of one of the remarkable cultural figures of the last hundred years - Josephine Baker - who broke down barriers in a wide range of different fields throughout her wildly varied life. Stuart, meanwhile, shares the story of The Beatles' thwarted efforts to bring 'The Lord of the Rings' to the big screen decades before Peter Jackson had the same idea.
