An illustrated tour through the dark story of our fascination with murder, with Lucy Worsley. A renowned historian and Chief Curator at the charity Historic Royal Palaces, Lucy has covered the history of this very British obsession in a recent book and BBC TV series. She'll 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 a horrific early nineteenth-century serial-killer in the East End of London, she'll end with the tame drawing room dramas of Agatha Christie.
