Reith Lectures - Hilary Mantel - Resurrection

Hilary Mantel is delivering this year's Reith Lectures, on the theme of resurrection. The first lecture, The Day is for the Living, was given at the Halle in Manchester, has Mantel declaring that her great-grandmother was the daughter of a Patrick, the wife of a Patrick, and the mother of a Patrick. The past is what's left in the sieve once the centuries have run through it, she says.
