About this Event:

Controller of BBC Four Richard Klein introduces the premiere of a new film by journalist, writer and former editor of the Lady magazine, Rachel Johnson. Johnson goes on a quest to find out how to be a lady. It’s not without its challenges – after all, her husband once described her as ‘the definition of everything a lady is not’!

But with a handful of vintage etiquette books to guide her and a generous helping of archive footage, the film follows her as she embarks on a journey into the past, present and future of all things ladylike.

From etiquette classes to side-saddle lessons, from fashion to manners, she wants to know how our idea of the lady has changed over time – and what it means to be a lady now.

Presented by BBC Four, this is an opportunity to see a full screening of the film before it airs on television. This event lasts one hour 30 minutes.

A film premiere presented by BBC Four.
