Season 1, Episode 1 – “East Anglia: The Scene of the Crime”
In the first episode, journalist and BBC Radio 4′s The World at One presenter Martha Kearney will be in East Anglia. She will be exploring why the isolated and flat East Anglian countryside has long been the chosen scene for great thriller writers, from Dorothy L Sayers to PD James and Nicci French.Martha, who has a home in Suffolk, explores how the ephemeral nature of Fen and coast has been a constant theme and explores the tensions between the sinister and the tourist images of rural East Anglia.
Season 1, Episode 2 – “London: City of Strangers”
London has a population of over eight million people, but many of the residents came from somewhere else and were at some point new to the city. London icon ‘Suggs’ Graham McPherson is one of them.In this film he looks at the novels and novelists who have best depicted that early isolation and bewilderment that moving into the city brings, and the sense of belonging that follows. Who can forget Oliver Twist’s first impressions as the Artful Dodger leads him through the teeming streets?Suggs meets Rose Tremain, author of The Long Road Home. All books in the film illustrate perfectly the arrival of a stranger to the city who quickly falls into becoming just another Londoner. And each author brilliantly describing, in their own way, the capital city and its outskirts.
