Remarkable Miss North, The

Alternative title
Kew’s Forgotten Queen
Synopsis
A BBC4 documentary about the unknown story of Marianne North, one of the most prolific botanical artists of the Victorian age.
North embarked on a project that changed the face of botanical research. The artist dedicated her life to painting the world’s plants in the wildest of places. Her legacy, which can be viewed at Kew Gardens, remains as important and mesmerising today as it was in 1882, when the gallery opened at Kew. This documentary reveals North’s life and times and how her passion for plants has established her as one of the most important female botanist of all times.
