This week Sheila McClennon hears about experiments with dry ice, photographing ice crystals and the woman JB Priestly described as "ice without and fire within". There's also discovering the truth after 23 years as families are given access to files the police tried to destroy in 1989. Sound familiar? These are people in the former East Germany and the archivists piecing together painful revelations. But of course there's also Wednesday's extraordinary events which kept me glued to my radio all day as the extent of the Hillsborough cover up was established beyond doubt.
