TNA Podcast: A Very British Murder

Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces and presenter of history television programmes for the BBC discusses how the British people have enjoyed and consumed the idea of murder as entertainment. http://media.nationalarchives.gov.uk/index.php/writer-month-british-murder/.

The presentation, after a short promo for the historic royal palaces, starts with the Ratcliff murders and the murder of Maria Marten "daughter of a mole-catcher at Polstead, Suffolk, and was possessed of a very attractive person and but little discretion."

This is a Writer of the Month talk – one of a series featuring high profile authors who share their experiences of using original records in their writing. Lucy Worsley knows how to make an entertaining presentation.
