Untold: The Daniel Morgan Murder
An idiosyncratic private investigator in South London - as a child, he bred rabbits and built his own kayak; as an adult, he founded his own detective agency - Daniel Morgan was on the verge of exposing a police corruption scandal when he was murdered in a pub carpark. This was in 1987; his killing is yet to be solved, despite five separate inquiries. In this podcast, the story of Morgan's life is told in ten parts, by writer Peter Jukes and Morgan's brother Alastair (it is also, according to a solemn aside in the credits, supported by Hugh Grant, because that's a thing that happens now). There's an awful lot of ground to cover, and a cast of characters as long as your arm, but with so much potential in the material, we think it's worth hearing.
