Dr Clarke’s new book features in print and radio
SHU journalism lecturer David Clarke will feature in BBC History magazine and on BBC Radio 4 this month following the launch of his new book Britain’s X-traordinary Files.
Using the National Archives, Dr Clarke brings to light a range of secret documents created by military intelligence and government agencies including mediums employed by the police to help with psychic crime-busting to sea monster sightings reported to the Royal Navy.
The book has resulted in an article in BBC History magazine on the ‘Top 9 unsolved historical mysteries’.
And on Monday October 13 from 9-9.45am Dr Clarke will be live on BBC Radio 4 Start The Week with authors Susan Hill (of Woman in Black fame) and Val McDermid, talking about forensic investigation and story writing using archive sources.
