Dame Margaret Anstee

Hay Festival 2003, 
The former Under Secretary General is the highest ranked woman in the history of the UN. Her memoir Never Learn To Type discusses her carrer from the days in the Foreign Office with Donald MacLean, Harold Wilson's government think-tank, and her UN work trying to bring peace to Angola, to tackle drugs in Russia and turn around economic disasters in Boliva. She talks to BBC World anchor, Nik Gowing.
