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.

Fascinating and racy, this documentary brings her work to life for a whole new generation.
“Hardly worth the time to watch. Pretending to be a scholarly look at this very original woman, they do not even pronounce her name correctly. Not that hard to investigate; my daughter is named for Anaïs Nin–that would be Ah-nah-ees–and the actress portraying her is just ridiculous.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI suggest u0026quot;Henry and Juneu0026quot; instead.”
