Jackson, who, during the past years, turned down movies and interview requests during to focus on her second career, abandoned the political life in May 2015 and now, a few months after her 80th birthday, she is coming back to her creative career. She is now narrating a serialisation of Emile Zola stories for BBC Radio 4 and she has described her return to the scenes as “daunting and exciting at the same time”.
