As part of the BBC TV One Show on Friday 10 July a very brief but interesting and special segment will be shown on the programme about crime fiction and why it is enjoyed by so many. The One Show is broadcast between 7 and 7:30pm on BBC 1. Leading the investigation on the popularity of crime fiction is Sandi Toksvig and she is being aided and abetted by 2009 Diamond Dagger Award winner Andrew Taylor, critic and editor of Crime Time Barry Forshaw along with a number of culprits (aka fans) Lizzie Hayes, Adrian Muller, myself and Shaz Wheeler. If you do not manage to catch it on Friday it can also be seen here or on BBC iplayer as well. Further information can be found on the website.
The segment is being shown in anticipation of a number of the Dagger Awards that are being given on the 15 July 2009 along with the announcement of the shortlists in the national media as well.
Not sure how much of all that was taped is going to be shown!
