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 us to 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 1960’s.

In the second programme Mary finds a growing appetite for her recipes leads to a stellar book publishing and broadcasting career and The Great British Bake Off introduces her brand of home cooking to a whole new generation.
