Moving Pictures is a series examining great artworks and the stories behind them. In this programme we stroll along the highstreet of a market town in Regency England - as imagined in a one-of-a-kind patchwork bedcover, held in the collection of the V&A Museum. This needlework masterpiece features tiny applique scenes of everyday life: children flying kites, chimney sweeps heading home from work, a fishwife off to market. Cathy FitzGerald asks if one of the little characters might be the maker herself.
