Elisabeth Beresford dies

JAM guest Elisabeth Beresford has died. Beresford appeared just once, on the third show of the first season where she appeared with Derek Nimmo, Sir Clement Freud and Betty Marsden.

She is best known as the creator of The Wombles, the stars of a series of books which Beresford wrote, and later of TV and film.

I was interested to see though that the Wombles was not published when she appeared on JAM, so she was picked for the show on the strength of her journalistic work and appearances on the radio programme Women's Hour.

The Telegraph has a very good obituary here.

RIP Elisabeth Beresford.
