Murder on the Home Front: A graphic look at the London Blitz of 1940

PBS Distribution is making a killing.
That's a good thing.
They have released Murder on the Home Front on DVD and Blu-ray. Set during the London Blitz of 1940, the documentary, a production of Carnival Films, sheds a different light on the everyday horrors of living in a city where death can visit at any moment. Vibrant, defiant and energetic, this is a world of people living life for the moment. It is also a world where criminals can use the blackout and devastation to hide their darkest activities. As the Luftwaffe drop their bombs from above, below people are literally getting away with murder.
Patrick Kennedy stars as Dr. Lennox Collins, a pathologist new to murder cases and obsessed with pursuing the truth through all means available. This often pits him against his superiors and, in particular, the highly respected Professor Henry Stephens, played by James Fleet. Breaking barriers is Tamzin Merchant as Molly Cooper, who, alongside Dr. Collins, discovers a serial killer at large under cover of the Blitz.
Damn interesting
