Andrea Riseborough's Margaret Thatcher

4 January 2012 Last updated at 09:50 GMT

One of the most recent portrayals of Margaret Thatcher came in the form of 30-year-old actress Andrea Riseborough, Bafta-nominated for her performance in The Long Walk to Finchley.

The BBC Four drama focused on Thatcher's early political career - from her attempts to gain a seat in Dartford in 1949 to her successful campaign to win a parliamentary seat in Finchley, in 1959.
