Elinor Goodman explores Margaret Thatcher's life and continuing political involvement as a 'back seat driver' after she ceased to be prime minister.

With interviews with former cabinet colleagues and others who knew her well, the programme examines how she attempted to influence her successors, often to the annoyance of many Conservatives although with the backing of her continuing supporters.
