Polly Toynbee: By the Byline image

How does Polly Toynbee square a family history which includes a stately home spotted in several period dramas with her place in a long line of committed left-wing rabble rousers? Hear the much-loved Guardian writer discuss her memoir An Uneasy Inheritance: My Family and Other Radicals, exploring the guilt of privilege, the myth of mobility, and the complexities of class in Britain now. In conversation with Sally Magnusson.
