"We will look at the life and philanthropic work of the amazing 19th century millionairess, friend of Dickens and the Duke of Wellington, supporter of a multitude of causes and the first woman to be made Baroness in her own right. Discover how she coped with unexpected wealth, stalkers and found happiness in unexpected places."
