Sr. Silvana Dallanegra, a religious sister from the Society of the Sacred Heart, spoke on Sunday on BBC Three Counties Radio on the themes that run throughout Call the Midwife. The period drama follows a group of nuns and nurse midwives working in the East End of London in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s, and is now in its 8th series.

Sr. Silvana talks about the realism of the characters, and the correlation between the life issues that nuns were faced with then and the issues that nuns work with today in their ministries. To listen to Sr. Silvana’s interview, please click here (8:15 minutes into the Breakfast Show).
