Dur to work commitments and lack of spare time, we’ll switch to an episode every 2 weeks for a while.
Due to time issues, there won’t be an episode this week. Back next week.
Merry Christmas everybody. We’ll come back after the holidays.
No episode this week, we’re taking some time off. We should be back next week.
This week we’re in the City of Lights in the 1980s. There’s a habit needed fuelled and an ambition to be a drag queen mogul to be fulfilled.
On the 4th August 1920, the police discovers in the train station in Nancy (East of France) a large box shipped from Paris containing the body of Georges Bassarabo, killed with a gun shot.
In a weird case strangely connected to the Landru affair (previous episode), everybody lies, and the consequences are a matter of life and death.
In Fench, anonymous letters are said to come from “the crow”. This week’s episode will look into the affair that is at the origin of that expression: a small countryside city, Tulle, the capital of the Corrèze department, is terrorised for 4 years by anonymous letters telling people’s secrets and insulting even the local priest.
On the morning of the 21st May 1936, the body of Albert Bodit is found in a field near Bresdon, Charente-Maritime. He’s been shot to death. Who killed him and why?
As it’s the height of summer, in Episode 14 we’ll be looking at the murder of a high profile, English Chemist and his family whilst on holiday. Was it a spur of the moment act, or a pre-planned mission masterminded from behind the iron curtain?

On the 28th July 1914, the French finance minister’s wife is acquitted of the murder of the director of the Figaro, one of the largest newspapers in the country. On the same day, the first world war starts.
