An Evening of Murder with Dr Lucy Worsley

  • Show Information

An illustrated tour through the dark story of our fascination with murder, with Dr Lucy Worsley, BBC TV presenter, renowned historian and Chief Curator at the charity Historic Royal Palaces. She’ll not only examine some notorious crimes and criminals, but also explain how murder became a form of middle-class entertainment through novels, plays, paintings, and the press. Starting with an horrific early nineteenth-century serial-killer in the East End of London, she’ll end with the tame drawing room dramas of Agatha Christie.
Dr Lucy Worsley is Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, a successful author and her impressive TV credits for the BBC include the three-part series A Very British Murder and The First Georgians, the most-watched arts documentary in the history of BBC4. She is currently appearing in a new BBC4 series, Dancing Cheek to Cheek – the untold story of British Dance, with co-presenter Len Goodman.
