Jolie, a United Nations special envoy who was appointed a visiting professor at the London School of Economics last month, will host the final edition of the week in which Woman’s Hour is taken over by five guest editors, from 13-17 June.
Berry, the co-host of BBC1’s The Great British Bake Off, will cover an eclectic range of topics including the legacy of the Guides and how you can express yourself with homemade presents and handwritten notes.
“I have chosen subjects close to my heart. I still have my cooking badge and wonder how guiding has changed from my day,” Berry said. “Gardening as therapy – after a busy day recipe testing or filming inside, I cannot wait to get into the garden. And I’m thinking of keeping bees.”
