Trial of Dr Crippen - The Most Famous English Murderer: Full-Cast Drama

Mild-mannered Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen committed one of the most notorious English murders of the 20th Century. In early 1910 he dismembered his wife's body and buried the remains in the coal cellar of the house they shared in Hilldrop Crescent, London. Arrested with his lover Ethel Le Neve, who was disguised as his son as they tried to escape to Canada aboard the SS Montrose. His subsequent trial at the Old Bailey was expected to be a mere formality, but Dr Crippen pleaded 'Not Guilty!', and so begins this strangely moving tale of passion and despair. A full-cast dramatisation starring ANDREW SACHS as Dr Hawley Harvey Crippen with full supporting cast. Also available as part of the Great British Trials BOX SET. The series Great British Trials provides a fascinating glimpse into some of the most notorious crimes and trials of the last 500 years.

An everyday story of sheep, sin and scholarship under the shadow of the Long Mynd Written by Sue Limb (Gloomsbury, Skeletons in the Cupboard), this pastoral sitcom follows six months in the life of the Jones family, who live on a small farm in rural Wales. We join them in September - the start of the farming year - as daughter Megan, a brainy 'plain Jane', sets her sights on Mr Bootle - only to find he's really just interested in birdwatching. December brings 'Goose-Feathering Night' - but Megan's determined to save Gudrun from a plucking. February finds her desperate to get into Oxford University but fearing rejection: could the creepy Mr Jenkins offer a solution? There are ructions in April, as her desire to escape the farm and become a student leads to a confrontation; while June sees a storm descend on the village, and the talk turns electric. And, as August arrives and the harvest is gathered in, Megan spurns the Carnival Queen contest in favour of a visit to Nana... BAFTA-winning actress and comedian Rebecca Front (The Thick of It, Lewis, Avenue 5) stars as Megan, with Geoffrey Whitehead as Mr Jones, Lisbeth Miles as Ma Jones, Matthew Morgan as Owen, Michael Fenton Stevens as Mr Bootle and Nickolas Grace as Mr Jenkins.

Author: Sue Limb Narrator: Denise Coffey, Geoffrey Whitehead, Joss Ackland, Miriam Margolyes Release Date: August 2020

Sisters Alison and Maud are joint landladies of the Abbeyfield Guest House, dispensing hospitality to a variety of demanding clients while also looking after their irascible, bedridden father downstairs in the granny flat. Dreamy ornithologist Alison has just moved back from Bloomsbury, while Maud ran a 3000-acre farm in Africa - but neither sibling is really up to the task of managing a B&B, and chaos generally ensues. In these two series, Alison has the hots for their accountant, Bernard - and is the reluctant object of a courtship display from a fellow bird-fancier; Maud comes up trumps in the middle of the night (but what will the guests make of what's in the saucepan?) and handyman Mr Mullet and the Bishop of Norwich get a little too close for comfort over tea. Meanwhile, the landladies' daddy complains about his new orthopaedic mattress, battles with hallucinogenic fungus and chips and prepares for his 85th birthday party - but what form will the celebrations take? Sue Limb's sitcom stars Denise Coffey as Alison and Miriam Margolyes as Maud, with Joss Ackland as Father and Geoffrey Whitehead as Bernard.

The Architects: The complete series 1 and 2: A BBC Radio comedy Audiobook

The Architects: The complete series 1 and 2: A BBC Radio comedy

Arch-Brutalist Sir Lucien founded his architectural practice on a commitment to brutalist concrete in all its forms. But fashion has been a cruel mistress, and four decades later things are not going well for Sir Lucien and his loyal(ish) employees. With no money and no commissions, times are tough – but it’s onwards and upwards (and upwards again) for the staff, as they go all out to win new contracts, deal with nightmare clients and fight to get their ambitious projects past the planners. In the pilot episode, architects Sarah (Laura Solon) and Dan (Ben Willbond) contemplate escape from a malfunctioning multi-storey car park in Esher and the pure aesthetic of the open sandwich. Series 1 finds Sir Lucien (Geoffrey Whitehead) trying to overcome his creative block by visiting a spa in Baden Baden – accompanied by reluctant colleague Tim (Alex Carter). Back at the practice, the other partners are juggling ambition, principles and scary Americans – and dreaming of taking minimalism to the max. In Series 2, Sir Lucien and Partners chase a lucrative airport contract, head to Watford to restyle a Premier League footballer’s mansion, design a building with a great big turret (possibly) and decide to go into house building – negotiating marshland, unexploded bombs and homicidal relatives en route... Written by Jim Poyser and Neil Griffiths, this caustic, satirical comedy also stars Dominic Coleman, Ingrid Oliver, Anna Crilly and Aisling Bea.

As they are picked off one by one, who could possibly be responsible? The killers are forced to turn detective so they can find the unknown murderer, but one by one they become victims...
