Broadcast drew Redgrave to child rights

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -November 30, 2010

Listening to the BBC on the radio, Redgrave says she was "spellbound" by a production that featured well-known actors reading the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations in 1948.

Article 25 says motherhood and childhood are entitled to special assistance, and all children enjoy the same protections.

Now 73, Redgrave appeared Tuesday as a goodwill ambassador as the U.N. children's agency UNICEF released a report on children and AIDS. She is currently featured in the Broadway production of "Driving Miss Daisy," alongside James Earl Jones and Boyd Gaines.
