The Strange and Violent Case of Mr Biswas

Sunday 23 January 2005 21:30-22:15 (Radio 3)

Journeying through the Glasgow of the 1920s and 30s, writer and academic Sukhdev Sandhu goes on a personal quest to find the truth about a series of murders that have apparently been written out of Scottish history.

Once described as "the second city of empire" and a place "made fat on imperial trade", Glasgow was home to a sizeable ethnic population. But, as the race riots of 1919 demonstrated, there was an underlying tension that led to some startling and disturbing events. Recorded on location at key sites in Glasgow.

Duration:

45 minutes
