SUMMARY

"Oft in danger, never afraid". This was Anna Brassey’s life motto as she travelled the world on a Victorian steam clipper. Her journal, 'A Voyage in the Sunbeam' made her experiences famous and established her as a popular Victorian writer. But who was the very private woman behind the public image? Puppetry, drama, song and film contribute to revealing how Anna and her servant, Bessie, survive as they negotiate prejudice and personal tragedy.

Anna Brassey: mother, explorer, curator, campaigner, pioneer - a woman ahead of her time.
