Lives Remembered: Hilda Castell

Hilda Castell was a head teacher who was beloved of generations of her pupils at Rainham Primary School, and who had huge influence over hundreds of young people. At the ripe old age of 95 she was still in touch with former colleagues and pupils, and was still a regular at her college annual re-unions. It is no exaggeration to say that she was loved by them all.

From time to time, Hubert Duprat likes to etch his name into one of the gold flakes. But unlike most artists signing their work, he has a guilty conscience about it. "I feel as if I am exploiting my workers," he says. "It is their work as much as it is mine."

The Week in Radio: Portrait of a pretend Pope that restores the faith

Who will be the first female Pope? Before you start saying "Ann Widdecombe" or talking about the doctrine of the all-male priesthood let me stop you. Because we may have already had a female Pope, and what's more she was English! This un-looked for boost to our international reputation came in John Julius Norwich's diverting Book of the Week: The Popes, which kicked off with Joan (or John as she called herself) who was elected in the mid ninth century after Leo IV. Carelessly, Joan got pregnant and gave birth on procession in a narrow lane near St Peter's, leading to horrible clerical reprisals. Yet was she for real? Sadly, Norwich thinks not, though there are plenty of documentary accounts of how she was dragged through the street and Martin Luther says he saw a statue of Joan, which was thrown into the Tiber by Sixtus IV. But coins from the period seem to prove otherwise, so perhaps the female Pope was only the result of wishful thinking by historians trying to spice up the institution of the papacy, though judging by the rest of this series, it needs little spicing. Wonderfully, however, Joan's legacy was said to live on in the form of the Porphyry Chair, a throne with a reclining back and a huge keyhole in the seat. Before the Pope's enthronement, "his testicles are felt by a junior cleric present as proof of his male sex, and the cleric shouts out 'here hangs testicles!'" If undignified clerical groping was the fate of every Pope for centuries then you might say that Joan had the last laugh.
