    Three doors down: a murder, a mother and a thirty year investigation

    In May 2023 David Boyd was found guilty of the brutal murder in 1992 of seven year-old Nikki Allan. Sharon Henderson, Nikki’s mother, called for a public inquiry into why it had taken the police so long to find and convict her daughter’s murderer. 

    When Nikki was murdered, Sharon was a single mother of four living in Wear Garth, a rundown housing estate in Sunderland. David Boyd lived a few floors above Sharon in the same block. He was known to the police. He was the kind of offender who should have been caught. 

    Three doors down tells the astonishing story of Sharon Henderson’s thirty year campaign to get justice for her daughter’s killing. It shines a light on police behaviour and their treatment of working class women. It’s a personal tale of trauma and resilience in the face of systemic police failure, that couldn’t be more timely.

  • The death of brilliant scientist Dr Brenda Page remained a mystery for more than 40 years - becoming one of Britain's longest-running unsolved murders.

    The young and talented 32-year-old was bludgeoned to death in her flat in Aberdeen - the Scottish city famous for its granite buildings and oil industry.

    On July 13, 1978, Brenda - originally from Ipswich, England - left her laboratory at the University of Aberdeen where she headed up the genetics department, and joined two rich businessmen for dinner at a plush hotel in the city.

    The following day, worried colleagues went to check on her after she failed to turn up for work - and made the grim discovery of her body. Brenda had been beaten to death in a violent and frenzied attack with a blunt instrument. When it was revealed that she'd been living a double life, rumours spread about the identity of her killer.

    In this seven-part series, award-winning journalist Ruth Warrander explores three theories as to who could have killed Brenda, before she reveals the shocking truth.

  • There aren’t many people who can say that they’ve had a Banksy statue in their back garden, but Andy Link is one of them. In 2004, he kidnapped one of Banksy’s pieces of art in broad daylight from the middle of central London, and held it to ransom. The fact that someone would kidnap a Banksy statue is pretty absurd already, but the story of why it happened, how the statue vanished again after it was kidnapped, and how it was mysteriously put up for auction over 10 years later is even wilder. It all comes down to 1 man, and a 2 decade long vendetta. The story will take us on a journey through UK’s most subversive sub-cultures: from art heists and art terrorists, to 80s football hooliganism, the 90s illegal rave scene, even fetish parties. While all the while, we try to track down one of the most elusive anonymous artists in the world. All to discover…who robs a Banksy??

  • This is a true story but what kind of story is it? A murder cold case, a conspiracy involving the police or a paranormal happening?

    Two old friends, a TV scriptwriter, Graham Mitchell (Silent Witness) and an ex-BBC investigative journalist, Ian Muir-Cochrane (BBC File on 4) are in deepest Cornwall to find a remote cottage. It was here, that by all accounts, a ritual was conducted by a notorious satanist where a woman died. Although this happened decades ago, the cottage today is firmly on the map as a destination for paranormal investigators. What brings them from all over the country to this lonely and windswept moor?

    Graham was born and grew up in Cornwall and the mystery of what happened that night fascinates him. He has persuaded Ian to come down and help him investigate. As they begin to piece together who was there that night at the cottage, they discover an astonishing group of characters that influenced both artistic and political life in Britain. What brought them there and what were the events that led to a death and the creation of a modern-day myth?

    Although they have known each other for years, Graham and Ian have very different ways of getting to the truth which leads to tensions in their investigation. They also have to contend with Graham’s own personal tragedy which literally haunts him to this day. He still clings to the hope that it may be possible to make contact with the dead.

    Over six episodes they begin to peel back the layers of fact and fiction and what begins to emerge is a story of horror, tragedy, love and the afterlife.

    Join Graham and Ian on their journey into the darker side of Cornwall. Episodes of ONE DARK NIGHT are released each week.

  • A rapist. A survivor. A rape. These are the elements of a rape story. But this is not a rape story. This is a story of broken systems.

    Less Than 2% of reported rape cases lead to a conviction in the UK. And the system keeps doing everything wrong. This is a story about those who help survivors. And those who don’t. Those who make it all the more worse.

    For many, what happens after the rape haunts them for a long time. How the police didn’t help, how the university didn’t take them seriously, how the court blamed them, how people reacted poorly, and how some of them even ended up in jail.

    In this award-winning podcast series, Hera Hussain, the CEO and Founder of Chayn is joined by journalists, Jeevan Ravindran and Emma Guy. In three episodes, they walk with survivors of sexual violence, who seek justice from the legal system and help from the third sector. These are their voices and their experiences, sometimes narrated in our words and sometimes in their own. And at every turn, we find that the system fails.

    Less than 2% is the winner of five Lovie Awards: a Gold and People's Choice Award for Public Service and Activism, a Gold and People's Choice Award for Best Co-Hosts, and a Silver Award for Crime and Justice Episode.

  • Comedian & former criminal Andrew Hamilton interviews people about times when their lives went pear shaped.
