Mrs Livingstone, I Presume?

Christian missionary David Livingstone’s bicentennial is celebrated this year, but in all the coverage, little mention has been made of his wife Mary, who shared two of his great expeditions across the Kalahari. She was pregnant both times and, on the second trip, actually gave birth in the scrubland in a make-shift camp. Born in Africa, died in Africa, Mary still lives in the shadow of her famous husband.

GRF’s radio programme, ‘Mrs Livingstone, I Presume?’, tells the lost story of Mary Livingstone, missionary, wife and mother. Based on recent research by journalist and travel writer, Julie Davidson, and by Marion Moffatt, Mary’s great-great-grand niece, this 27-minute radio programme is broadcast on Premier Christian Radio, Heartland FM (Pitlochry), Manx FM (Isle of Man) and on other stations across the UK.
