PD James on the Today Programme

PD James the crime writer was the guest editor on the Today Programme this morning so there were some interesting and relevant items. Her grilling of Mark Thompson was pretty impressive although not much to do with criminology. You can listen again to the items individually from this page:

Some highlights:
Former Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Ian Blair and the best selling crime writer Lynda La Plante, discuss why viewers never seem to tire of watching fictional police detectives at work.

Guest editor PD James discusses her concerns that there are considerable public anxieties about aspects of the criminal justice system with the Secretary of State for Justice, Jack Straw.
Happy new year to all!
