Lucy Worsley – A Very British Murder

Friday 5 November 2021

Clive Conway Productions

An illustrated tour through the dark story of our fascination with murder, with renowned historian Lucy Worsley. Lucy has covered the history of this very British obsession in a book and BBC TV series.

Here she shares its secrets and explores the history of this phenomenon in forensic detail, examining not only the crimes themselves but also how murder became a form of middle-class entertainment through novels, plays, artefacts and the press. From a Regency serial killer to Agatha Christie, this is the story of how crime was turned into art.
