The Waiting Room

The writer Julia Darling began a web diary in 2002 to chart her journey through breast cancer.

Poignant, honest, funny - and filled with everyday life events like looking after teenagers, staying in hotels, living in Newcastle - the web also charts the ups and downs of being ill, until her death three years later.

Featuring poems set to music.

Performed by Tim Dalling, Pete Challower and Charlie Harwick, and contributions from Bev Robinson.

The log was edited by Jackie Kay and directed by Susan Roberts.
