Om Chichester Murders & Misdemeanours
A look at the dark side of life, Victorian-style, when nothing was quite as it seemed and a public execution could be an entertaining family day out. Murderers, poachers, thieves, pickpockets and vagabonds all went about their business with impunity. Crime took place on the streets, on public transport, in homes, pubs, prisons, asylums, workhouses and brothels - it was all part of everyday life in Chichester in the late 1800s. It was madness and mayhem in those weird and wonderful times - and it's brought vividly to life by Philip MacDougall in Chichester Murders and Misdemeanours.
