Sat 9 Jan - SOUNDS OF SENSATION - The Illustrated Police News
Sound artist Ian Thompson and Jude Cowan Montague in a live improvisation on some of the sensational accounts of crime disseminated via the Illustrated Police News.A best seller of mid to late Victorian times, the IPN was a part of the publishing boom in illustrated newspapers attracting mainly working-class audiences. Selected stories from the magazine include the dream of the infamous Kate Webster, hung for the Richmond murder in 1879. Another in our series on early journalism.
