About the Show

"Murder on the Home Front," a 90-minute murder mystery, is loosely based on the memoirs of Molly Lefebure, who was secretary during World War II to the Home Office Pathologist and pioneer of modern forensics, Keith Simpson. Set during the London Blitz of 1940, the show sheds a different light on the everyday horrors of living in a city where death can visit at any moment.
