Steamboat Ladies

This is the story of 700 female students from Oxford and Cambridge who travelled to Trinity College Dublin by Steamboat to collect their degrees, because their own universities refused to confer degrees upon women.

Welcome To Curious Broadcast

Welcome to Curious Broadcast. I am privileged that my work as a documentary maker provides a space for me to be creative, to craft audio stories. Each story I tell has been gifted from another. The people I have met through my documentaries have shared with me their passions, knowledge, insights and intellect. Each time I have made a documentary, I have also been given another story, a small nugget that has got me curious. The older I get, the more I believe, that staying curious is the best things we can do for our minds, so thank you for all those that have allowed me to stay curious. РPatricia Baker
