An absorbing look at the use of cosmetics and fashion through historical figures such as Elizabeth I (covering her face in lead and mercury!) which serves as a thought-provoking path to today's attitudes to beauty and appearance.
A fantastically written, produced and presented episode on a part of history that (as a non-American) I embarrassingly know little about. This takes historical injustice, and shows how it's still today's injustice. Absolute must listen.
