ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- [Henry] I started with Glenn,

and with the one person in her family

who most clearly shared her sense of drama.

Her maternal grandmother, Elizabeth Moore.

- Oh, she was wonderful.

She had this great spirit and I once met a lady,

sitting, waiting for a train in Greenwich.

And this lady,

she figured out who my grandmother was,

and she said, she kind of got all misty

and se said, oh, Betty Moore.

She knew how to enter a room.

- That's great.

(peaceful music)
