Anne Lister BS: Somebody nicked my name (35) RE: BS: Somebody nicked my name 27 Sep 19

There have been two programmes on the telly about the historic Anne Lister, one with Sue Perkins and the other with Suranne Jones (for the closing credits of which the film production used the song Gentleman Jack performed by O'Hooley and Tidow). Some years ago, and well before these programmes, I was given a copy of the diaries of Anne Lister when I was on tour in the States, which is how I know we share a birthday. But little else, I have to say, which is why it's unlikely I'll write a song about her, and I confess I haven't watched either of the shows even though friends have recommended them to me. She's not a blood relative - my Lister relatives were from mining and agricultural working families, not landed gentry. But we have had to add a disclaimer to my website, in case anyone confuses the two of us!
