The Mary Berry Story

This intimate two-part documentary tells the story of much-loved cookery writer and broadcaster Mary Berry. Mary shares personal milestones in her life, introduces some of her favourite recipes and talks candidly about the highs and lows of a lifetime spent teaching the nation to cook. In the first programme, Mary charts her life from a childhood in war-torn Bath, through her polio-scarred school days and first domestic science lessons, to her early career in the 1960s. In the second programme, Mary finds a growing appetite for her recipes leads to a stellar career in book publishing and broadcasting, and The Great British Bake Off introduces her brand of home cooking to a whole new generation.
