Penelope Keith tells the story of Edwardian 'it girl' and motoring pioneer Dorothy Levitt.

She retraces Levitt's 1905 journey from London to Liverpool in a De Dion motor car, with the aid of Dorothy's handbook The Woman and the Car and advice from motoring historians and veteran car enthusiasts. The story is further illustrated by archive material from the period.
