In our first of six shows in celebration of both International Women’s Day and 100 years of partial voting rights for women in the UK, SNS Online returnee, Louise Jameson, waxes lyrical about Big Finish Productions’ ATA Girl (devised by Louise herself). ATA Girl is an audio drama inspired by the real women of the *Air Transport Auxiliary during the Second World War. From the UK and beyond, a hundred and sixty eight female pilots, alongside the men, transported a vast range of aircraft from the factories to the squadrons, sometimes flying in perilous weather conditions and without radios or instrument instruction.
One in ten ATA pilots died.
