The woman who flew the world the stirring story of a British legend. At a time when women were meant to be nothing more than wives or typists, she flew across the world, battling the elements in a tiny biplane and shattering records as she went. And she became an international celebrity, both supported and crushed by a media machine that viewed her as an exploitable commodity as much as a heroine. This superb drama tells the remarkable story of 1930s aviatrix Amy Johnson (Harriet Walter), an ordinary girl from Hull whose astonishing, pioneering achievements transformed global air travel. It is also a portrait of a complex woman whose tempestuous marriage to fellow aviator, Jim Mollison (Clive Francis), brought her both joy and grief, and whose death remains as mysterious as her life was eventful.
