‘Sentenced to Beyond the Seas’ by David Clark, a well known and highly regarded local speaker who last visited us in October 2019 when he spoke about the BBC banning records from the radio airwaves.

The true and fascinating tale of 8 Worcestershire female convicts sentenced to death or transportation in the 1780's to the 'Land Beyond the Seas'. That land was to become Australia and those women the foundation of a new nation. One of the would be the progenitor of the largest living family group in Australia today. Another would return to England a rich woman.

‘Inside the Crown Court’ by Marguerite Collins

Marguerite worked at the Crown Court for sixteen years. She will cover Worcester Shire Hall and the role of the people who work within the Court. She will include some of the cases and trials she worked on and select a typical trial to show the circumstances of the crime, evidence police gathered and how the trial unfolded.  She only talks about matters discussed in open court.

‘Nothing like a good conspiracy theory’ by Mike Watkins

We all like a good conspiracy theory. Paranoia, secrecy, intrigue and even lunacy; some have got it all. A light hearted look at some of the strangest and weirdest theories and a few of the almost believable ones. It goes on and on and is the truth out there? All may be revealed or it might not.. you can judge!
