A one-hour celebration of Anais Nin's ground-breaking diaries, this special programme brings the influential author's voice to the fore in a way not seen before on television. Shivani Kapur and Lucy Cohu star as Anais in dramatisations of different periods of her life, while Alix Wilton Regan plays the young polar-necked reporter, Leah, who helps uncover Nin's story. The drama is punctuated with commentary from high- profile fans, such as writer and broadcaster Rowan Pelling. Fascinating and racy, this documentary brings her work to life for a whole new generation.
The erotic mind of an exotic soul.
