Jane Tennison, now a Detective Sergeant, has been posted to Peckham CID, one of London's toughest areas. As the rubbish on the streets begins to pile up, so does the murder count: two bodies in as many days. There are no suspects and the manner of death is different in each case. The only link between the two victims is the location of the bodies, found within a short distance of each other near Rye Lane in Peckham. Three days later another murder occurs in the same area. Press headlines scream that a serial killer is loose on 'Murder Mile' and that police incompetence is hampering the investigation. Jane is under immense pressure to catch the killer before they strike again. Working long hours with little sleep, what she uncovers leaves her doubting her own mind.

Scotland was of grave strategic importance during the war because of its geographical position and its capital was the location of a significant number of important military and civil organisations. Edinburgh Castle became the HQ of the Scottish Home Forces whilst the Forth was a vitally important port and was heavily protected even before the start of the war. Its importance was marked by its attracting the first air raid of the war on mainland Britain when a force of German bombers was sent to attack naval shipping in the Forth on 16th October 1939. The raid was intercepted by the RAF which shot down at least two bombers and the entire action was witnessed by many civilians on the ground. The raid also caused the first civilian casualties when two women were injured in Edinburgh and two men machine-gunned in Portobello.

Liverpool’s proud and distinctive identity is embodied in the buildings that have shaped the city. Liverpool in 50 Buildings explores the extraordinary history of this rich and vibrant community through a selection of its greatest architectural treasures. From its humble thirteenth-century origins, Liverpool grew rapidly to become the greatest port in the British Empire outside London, but by 1980 the city was seemingly in terminal decline: its population had more than halved, its infrastructure and economy were decaying, and its political leaders were leading the city towards complete collapse. Today though, Liverpool is experiencing a renaissance; it has one of the fastest-growing economies in Britain, it has been a European Capital of Culture and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For 183 years, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Co. has been the lifeline to the island, providing passenger and freight services for the island. Almost into the twentieth century, the ships were primarily paddle steamers but screw steamers took over then. In 1962, the first ro-ro ferries arrived and by the late 1990s catamarans were being used, offering a huge increase in speed. The ships saw service during both wars and IOMSP vessels carried about one in fourteen of all the soldiers rescued at Dunkirk. After numerous changes of owners, the IOMSP is now owned by Portuguese investment banks but continues to dominate the Irish Sea routes to the Isle of Man, despite the competition from air transport.

Bounded by the River Dee in the west and by the River Mersey in the east, the Wirral peninsula is a remarkable place. The Wirral Through Time is a rare insight into the amazingly diverse history of this part of the country, a mishmash of both ancient and modern artefacts and locations that are often overlooked by the casual observer.
