' The Crimes of Burke and Hare' will be repeated in the National programme tomorrow at 8.40.
Tonight Tod Slaughter and his famous company of barnstormers return to the microphone in a special version of one of their stage successes. The drama of Burke and Hare is based on the exploits of the famous surgeon, Dr. Knox, of Edinburgh, who, needing corpses for his anatomical research, took care not to inquire too closely where they came from.
The play is concerned with the macabre characters of two Irish labourers, William Burke and William Hare , who found an easy way of making money in supplying Dr. Knox at ten guineas a time-daft Jamie Wilson being the instrument of justice.
This breath-taking story, soaked in the atmosphere of the Edinburgh underworld of a hundred years ago, is just the right medium for the terrifying melodramatic intensity of Tod Slaughter and his accomplices.
