Beatrix Potter with Pa­tri­cia Rout­ledge Chan­nel 4, 8pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

She’s prob­a­bly best known as Hy­ac­nith in Keep­ing Up Ap­pear­ances, but there’s an­other role that’s close to Pa­tri­cia Rout­ledge’s heart – au­thor Beatrix Potter, who she played on stage in the 1990s. The ac­tress has since gone on to be­come the pa­tron of the Beatrix Potter So­ci­ety, mak­ing her the per­fect per­son to present this doc­u­men­tary cel­e­brat­ing the 150th an­niver­sary of the au­thor’s birth. Pa­tri­cia ex­plores what led the writer to cre­ate her much-loved tales, and un­cov­ers the in­spi­ra­tions be­hind some of her most fa­mous char­ac­ters.
