Agatha Christie

Today the BBC Archive has released a small collection of radio and television items marking the 120th anniversary of the author's birth.

This new collection features interviews with Agatha herself and extracts from recently discovered tapes that she made in preparation for writing her autobiography. Also available to watch and listen to are tributes from theatrical luminaries including Lord Attenborough and Dame Sybil Thorndike, and items tracing the many anniversaries of Christie's legendary whodunnit, 'The Mousetrap'.

The collection is available now to view on the BBC Archive website.
