On stage and TV, in novels and films, the public have come to enjoy a good murder. This curious relationship with killing has a long, dark and revealing history, explored by historian Lucy Worsley in this three-part series. Lucy traces the origins of our fascination back to the sprawling London of the early nineteenth century, when newspapers first began to delight in reporting murder to a frightened public. An appetite for sensation developed as Britain became more literate and working class people were able to read. Throughout the series, Lucy visits the locations of notorious crimes, talks to experts in the field and consults a variety of archival sources and police reports.
