Identify a recent Radio 4 documentary

I'm trying to identify a BBC Radio 4 documentary I heard within the last week or two. It was about a French woman who creates experiences to communicate science and technology ideas. Examples included building a chair that shook and moved as a simulation of a rocket launch, and trying to reproduce the sound of walking and driving on moon dust. It ended with a friend of hers at NASA reading a recommendation letter to support her application to become an astronaut.

It was on iPlayer (probably Radio 4) within the last fortnight, but has since disappeared. Ideally I'd like to find a copy for my friend to listen to, but any details I can use to google up information about her and her work would be great.

Best answer: Was it Designing the Impossible, about Nelly Ben Hayoun?

Response by poster: Bingo! Yes, it was. Out of curiosity, did you remember it from my description, or are you just better at searching than I am?

Either way, thanks!
