Looking for Aunt Martha's Quilt

Just had to pop in and tell you about this fascinating  documentary 'Looking for Aunt Martha's Quilt'.
Beautifully made by the BBC it tells the story of a quilt made for Queen Victoria.
Weirdly, there is an out of date news broadcast in the middle but such are the idiosyncrasies of the BBC World Service!
Great listening for an hour while you sew and when you have listened to it click on the 'clip' below the main documentary for the pictures of Aunt Martha.

Thanks for the link Lin!
I heard this mentioned on (probably) Radio 2, last Friday, but didn't hear them mention where to find out more!
I look forward to following your link tomorrow.
