Crime Stories and Ghost Stories
Anne McElvoy with crime author Val McDermid, Susan Hill on her ghost stories, Alex Werner from the Museum of London on Sherlock Holmes and, on the paranormal, Dr David Clarke.
Why do we seek explanations for most mysterious events but prefer some when they're unresolved? That's the discussion with Anne McElvoy today, including Val McDermid who uncovers the secrets of forensic science, Susan Hill exploring suspense and atmosphere in ghost stories, Alex Werner from the Museum of London's new Sherlock Holmes exhibition and Dr David Clarke, who reveals the official accounts behind well known paranormal events.
Producer: Simon Tillotson.
Alex Werner is Head of History Collections at the Museum of London.
The exhibition Sherlock Holmes: The Man Who Never Lived And Will Never Die is on at the Museum of London and runs from 17 October 2014 until 12 April 2015.
An accompanying book with the same title is published by Ebury Press.
