Lucy Worsley: A Very British M**der | Thursday, 01. October 2020


An illustrated tour through the dark story of our fascination with M**der, 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 M**der 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.

Lucy is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces - she is a hugely popular writer, broadcaster and speaker. Her recent TV series includes Lucy Worsley: Mozart’s London Odyssey, Six Wives with Lucy Worsley, and American History's Biggest Fibs with Lucy Worsley.
