In season 2, episode 17 of MUD BETWEEN YOUR TOES, CONVERSATIONS WITH MARK OLDEN. My cousin Mark Olden is a journalist, TV producer and author of the book Murder in Nottinghill.

I’m talking to Mark today about his latest piece in the Guardian newspaper which highlights the tragic story of how a person can simply fall through the cracks in the system - even in a first world country.

This is Marks story about how David Blagdon spent 34 years in prison: his crime? Setting fire to a set of curtains in an Oxfordshire church.
