Today at 4.30pm on Resonance 104.4 FM, Panel Borders: Exploring The Murder Mile

Excerpt from The Murder Mile by Paul Collicutt

Excerpt from The Murder Mile by Paul Collicutt

Continuing a month of shows about comics and controversy, Alex Fitch talks to graphic novelist Paul Collicutt about his book The Murder Mile, published by SelfMadeHero, which sets the occurrence of a murder against the spectacle of Roger Banister running the four minute mile, an event that has reached its 60th anniversary this month. Alex and Paul discuss how the book combines the latter’s interests in running and film noir and how the author used a real life event to tell a tale of organised crime and sports betting. Recorded at Cartoon County, Brighton.

4.30pm, Monday 19th May, repeated 11am, Thursday 22nd May 2014, Resonance 104.4 FM (London) / streamed at www.resonancefm.com / podcast after broadcast at www.panelborders.wordpress.com
