  • Murderous History

    I recorded to episodes of this series last night on the Smithsonian channel. The first was on the baby farmer Amelia Dyer and second was on Harry Dobkin who murdered his wife during the Blitz and hid her body in a chapel. These were both really well done and with lots of great old footage. Well worth a look.

    “Conspiracy theorists, she knew, were paranoid by definition, and usually with good reason - they were indeed being watched, largely because they were standing on an upturned bucket, haranguing the sheeple with their wingnut delusions.” Mick Herron.

    I follow the blog of Angela Buckley - who I believe was one of the experts consulted on the first episode. Haven't seen it myself but definitely would be interested.

      Thanks for that Erobitha She appears in the programmes.

      I just looked in the book section and saw that she’s written four. I actually have the first one but the other three also look interesting (I’ll be adding them to my list of possible booms to buy.)
