The Incomparable Witness

on BBC Radio 4 FM

Written and compiled by MICHAEL KITTERMASTER
Narrated by Cyril Shaps
' In the hat-box I found particles of clothing, together with a large number of pieces of flesh - 37 in all. Thirty-five consisted of skin, having fat upon them and many of them also muscle.'
In the witness box an immaculately dressed man, a carnation in his buttonhole, whose extraordinary good looks suggested the actor rather than the doctor. This was Sir Bernard Spilsbury , born 100 years ago in 1877, who performed close on 30,000 post-mortems and gave evidence in all the major murder trials of the first half of the 20th-century. With the voices of: TIMOTHY BATESON , WILLIAM EEDLE DAVID GRAHAM , MICHAEL HARBOUR
CARLETON HOBBS , ANTHONY JACOBS NEVILLE JASON
NICOLETTE MCKENZIE
PENELOPE REYNOLDS and NORMAN SHELLEY
Produced and directed by BERNARD KRICHEFSKI (Benjamin Whitrow is in ' Dirty Linen ' at the Arts Theatre Club
London) (Kptd: Friday 11.5 am)
