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.
