Late one night in the snow, four students stumble upon the body of a dead girl. Twenty-five years later the police mount a "cold case" review of the unsolved killing, giving the friends an opportunity to clear their names once and for all. That is, until one of them dies in a suspicious house fire, and another in a burglary gone bad. It seems someone is still pursuing their own brand of justice. If the remaining two are to avoid becoming the next victim, they need to find out for themselves what really happened back there, in the snow. By Val McDermid, dramatised by Bert Coules.

Or ahead of their time? Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen travels through five decades of the "house of the future", exploring how British architects have responded to the promise - and threat - of new technology. producer Tracey Logan
House of the Future
Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen was positively quivering with enthusiasm as he described his Archive Hour programme on the weird homes that have been designed as visions of the future, as much for the fact that R4 had let him loose on some unsuspecting and deadly serious architects as for anything else. He says the more outlandish designs for houses can best be described as "a fantastic barometer of how society feels about itself at the time". Hence, in the fearful 50s "everyone hopes technology will sort everything out." And what of the Good Life-style craze in the 70s, including recycling your own poo to create energy? "How vile is that?" retorts LL-B. This is an absolute delight and he must be given a Radio 4 series! Jane Anderson radio editor
