P.L Travers - the girl who dreamt up Mary Poppins
Play • 17 min
When Pamela Lyndon Travers was a little girl her aunt came to stay. She was rather strict, but kind at heart, and carried with her a seemingly bottomless bag made of carpet. P.L Travers had the memory of this aunt swirling around in her imagination when she sat down to write a book, and before she knew it Mary Poppins flew onto the page. The magical nanny who could talk to animals and use her umbrella to fly, became one of the most loved and famous characters of all time.
Narrated by TV presenter Lisa Wilkinson.
