Iave known Ivan Cantu for 20 years. I also know the day he is due to die. Cantu, 50, has been on death row since 2001. I first met him a few years later when I moved to Texas from England. In the two decades Iave covered the death penalty in the US, Cantu has helped me understand what inmates go through in one of the Americaas most notorious prisons, and his own story of how he got there a a story that, if his execution goes ahead, will end on Wednesday at 6pm.

That story is complicated. Cantu was convicted of killing his cousin and his cousinas fiancA(c)e in November 2000 as a result of a drug dispute. But heas always denied it. There was no physical evidence proving he was at the crime scene a no fingerprints, shoe prints, DNA. And he was hundreds of miles away at his fiancA(c)eas parentsa house in Arkansas when the bodies of James Mosqueda, 27, and Amy Kitchen, 22, were discovered in their Dallas home, riddled with bullets. Yet Cantuas jeans and socks, which police found in his rubbish bin, had the victimsa blood on them, and Cantuas fiancA(c)e, Amy Boettcher, told police he had shown her the bodies.

On the run from Russia: the defector to Ukraine shot dead on the Costa Blanca

Maksim Kuzminov flew a Russian miltary helicopter to Ukraine. Armed with a new identity, he moved to a Spanish resort. Then he was killed in an underground car park

In some ways it is easy to see why Maksim Kuzminov chose to start a new life in Villajoyosa on the Costa Blanca. It overlooks the Mediterranean, with spectacular sunrises. Lemons and oranges droop from trees, brightly coloured homes dot the shore and Villajoyosa is famous for its chocolate. The name means Joyful Town.

More importantly, Kuzminov must have calculated he could blend into the Russian and Ukrainian communities that fill this corner of Spain with Slavic languages, food and faces. With a new identity a a passport claimed he was Igor Shevchenko a here was a place to hide in plain sight, safe from the vengeance of Vladimir Putin.

Wicked Little Letters review a a deliciously sweary poison-pen mystery

From https:

The true tale of a foul-mouthed scribbler in 1920s Sussex is given nuance by a stellar cast including Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Anjana Vasan and Timothy Spall

Before X or Twitter or even YouTube, if you wanted to vent your rage at an unjust world on a blameless bystander you had to go to the trouble of actually writing a letter and posting it. These were the days of the poison pen letter, an early 20th-century socio-criminal phenomenon here revived by comedian Jonny Sweetas gleefully sweary script and a competent ensemble of British comedyas finest directed by Thea Sharrock.

Swearwords, you see, can be very funny a especially when primly pronounced by a pious spinster such as Edith (Olivia Colman), who seems to be the letter writeras primary target. Or when spurting forth from a potty-mouthed slattern such as Edithas neighbour Rose (Jessie Buckley), on whom suspicion immediately falls. And these swearwords are particularly funny a a collection of naughty non sequiturs and rococo rantings that derive from the real letters of the Littlehampton libels, a forgotten scandal that terrorised this small Sussex town in the early 1920s. aPiss-country whorea? aFoxy-assed rabbit-fuckera? Epithets this fruity are clearly beyond the wit of man to invent. (And thereas your first clue to the letter writeras identity.)

O2 Academy Bristol
Ahead of this weekas Brits, where sheas up for a record seven gongs, the singer-songwriter draws on her famously hardwon debut album in a show poised between raw truths and joyous bangers

Raye glides her voice up an octave or two a cappella, then rattles off a melisma almost as an afterthought. The south London singer-songwriter holds a note for what seems an impossibly long time. Soon after, she fusses about her hair and explains how if sheas fiddling around under her skirt, sheas just adjusting a sweaty mic pack. Raye asks the crowd for clemency if a nipple pops out of her corset dress. aThere are some great photo-editing apps,a she jokes.

The nightas theme is, apparently, honesty, and Rachel Keen is the kind of glamorous pop star who, like Adele before her, shrinks the room by gassing about nerdy detail or confiding secrets of the trade. She is particularly delighted with the power she wields over Matt Brooks, her drummer, who is obliged to bring percussion crashing down every time she raises and lowers an arm. aI could be scratching my head! Or doing ballet!a she notes, hand above her head. aPaulyas so patient with me,a she adds, about guitarist Paul Murray, the band leader.

This Monday Maidstone will become the first team from outside the top five divisions since Blyth Spartans in 1978 to play in the FA Cup fifth round.

At Aveley a healthy proportion of the 709 spectators were Maidstone fans but 5,000 of them will be at Coventry. For the club that went bankrupt in 1992 and was forced to start again in the fourth division of the Kent County League, the tie will be another proud moment in a long journey back from oblivion.

The futuristic landmark is to become a hotel: fine. In charge of the project? A designer who likes to put his mark on things

In his 1994 movie London, a classic of poetical-geographical film-making, its director-writer Patrick Keiller speculates that the BT tower, that rises on the site that once contained a flat inhabited by Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud, is a secret monument to the French poetsa love. This is one of many instances of this structureas ability to generate myths a legend also had it that, as military secret, it couldnat be shown on Ordnance Survey maps. With its slender vertical fuselage and long-stalled revolving restaurant, it speaks of the hopeful futurism of the 1960s, of the white heat of technology, of Minis and miniskirts and the Beatles.

Its sale, for APS275m, by BT to a hotel group, if it gives the tower a secure future, is welcome. Iam more troubled by the reports that the designer Thomas Heatherwick is to arepurposea the building. His past work shows that heas not one to leave well alone, but rather festoon structures with over-sized flower-pots and look-at-me swirling shapes.

After this weekas Julian Assange court hearing, this is clear: extradition would amount to a death sentence | Duncan Campbell

At the high court, lawyers posed the pivotal question: how can exposing crime and torture be worse than committing them?

Which is the more serious criminal activity: extrajudicial killings, routine torture of prisoners and illegal renditions carried out by a state, or exposing those actions by publishing illegally leaked details of how, where, when and by whom they were committed?

That is essentially the question that was asked this week at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. It has sometimes seemed during the proceedings that the ornate building at the end of Fleet Street, opened by Queen Victoria in 1882, had become more of a theatre than a court. Outside, vast crowds gathered, chanted, listened to speeches, halted traffic and asked passing drivers to hoot their support. Inside, some of the UKas leading barristers, watched by journalists from all over the world, spelled out the plot to packed public galleries in overflow courts. This drama started more than a decade ago, yet only now are we approaching the final act.

He was 26, surrounded by drugs paraphernalia, and had daubed aROUGH TRADEa on the wall in his own blood. Last time we met, four years ago, he was in better nick and more sociable. That said, he was still smoking crack, threw a punch that just missed me, kissed my forehead by way of apology, and took me to his wreck of a house where he tried to flog me his possessions. He still had something about him: a wasted brilliance and surprising charm that he failed to hide, despite his best efforts.

As for his soul brother and sparring partner Carl BarAC/t, I met him in 2006 when he was also recovering from the Libertines. BarAC/t had just formed Dirty Pretty Things and the band was releasing its first album. He was quiet, likable, and profoundly depressed.

From thrilling Edwardian short stories about Sherlock Holmes, to the jaded gumshoes of 20th-century American pulp fiction, the figure of the lone private investigator, who watches from a shadowy street corner, has been chiefly assumed to be a male role. But now a new historic examination, to be discussed at the London Library on Thursday, is changing all that.

Fresh research has revealed that, in real life, women have been at the sleuthing game for as long as men. And they were, in fact, often more sought-after due to their particular skillsets. Private Inquiries: The Secret History of Female Sleuths, published by the History Press, has assembled the recent work of historian Caitlin Davies, now newly qualified as a private investigator herself, to tell the story of leading British lights of this secretive trade.

At the high court, lawyers posed the pivotal question: how can exposing crime and torture be worse than committing them?

Which is the more serious criminal activity: extrajudicial killings, routine torture of prisoners and illegal renditions carried out by a state, or exposing those actions by publishing illegally leaked details of how, where, when and by whom they were committed?

That is essentially the question that was asked this week at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. It has sometimes seemed during the proceedings that the ornate building at the end of Fleet Street, opened by Queen Victoria in 1882, had become more of a theatre than a court. Outside, vast crowds gathered, chanted, listened to speeches, halted traffic and asked passing drivers to hoot their support. Inside, some of the UKas leading barristers, watched by journalists from all over the world, spelled out the plot to packed public galleries in overflow courts.

When Donald Trump declared he would allow Russia to do awhatever the hell they wanta to Nato members who fail to meet funding commitments, world leaders and Democratic lawmakers reacted with shock and alarm.

A train through Ukraine: a journey into the stories of two years of war

From https:

On 900 miles of track between the frontline and the edge of the EU, soldiers and civilians reflect on their experiences

The opening bars of the Cossack March rang out from the platform speakers at Zaporizhzhia-1 train station, jaunty trumpets transitioning into a rousing military march, heralding the departure of train number four, the 17.53 to Uzhhorod.

Carriage attendants slammed shut the heavy metal doors, a few people on the platform waved forlorn goodbyes in the evening gloom, and the train clattered off on its journey across the entire breadth of Ukraine, a 900-mile ride from close to the frontline all the way to the border with the European Union.

aAt 80, I still have a lot of angera: American poet Nikki Giovanni

The activist and writer talks about fighting racial segregation, dealing with mobsters a and why her sense of outrage is undiminished

Nikki Giovanni was born on thewrong side of the tracks, inKnoxville, Tennessee, on Mulvaney Street, during the era of segregation. Now 80, she remembers her childhood in a red-lined neighbourhood, demarcating a cordon sanitaire separating it from prosperous white suburbs. aMy grandfather was a Latin teacher. Head sit on the porch [after school] and people would come by saying aEvening afessora. Reverend Abrams lived on the other side of our street and Mrs Abrams raised chickens. We built a church and there was a real community but now a| a

Now, the neighbourhood has been taken over by gentrifying middle-class white people, a development that Giovanni, barely masking her fury, struggles to find a word to describe, before settling on aunfaira. More words will come in her forthcoming memoir, A Street Called Mulvaney.

childhood remembrances are always a drag
if youare Black
you always remember things like living in Woodlawn
with no inside toilet
andif you become famous or something
they never talk about how happy you were to have
your mother
all to yourself and
how good the water felt when you got your bath

All I knew then
Was the sound
Of my father hitting
My mother every Saturday
Night until I heard
Her say aGus, please

You could also note what it does not have. It does not have firm borders or precise forms: the people in boats are just blue dabs, as are the boats. The sunlight and ship masts mirrored in the water are spattered, incoherent.

The Jury: Murder Trial a this legal experiment might be the most terrifying TV series ever
Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2024 07:00:23 GMT
From https:

One real-life murder case is reenacted, while two separate juries debate a verdict. This enthralling look at our judiciary shows how worryingly easily 12 people can be swayed

If you remember last year a wasnat that long ago, keep up a you might remember Jury Duty, a reality hoax series on Prime Video that was my personal show of the year. The format was amazing, so simple and so deft: a completely fake courthouse was set up in LA, where every member of the prosecution and defence, and every other member of the jury, was an actor. Then, at the centre, was the one normal guy who wasnat in on the facade, Ronald Gladden. It was an extraordinary logistical achievement, and the show simply wouldnat have worked if Gladden himself wasnat a sweet, wholesome, open-hearted person. But despite being played for comedy, it managed to say some interesting stuff about the legal system in the US. It showed how easily a room full of 12 people can be swayed, by a well-told story or a shared trauma or just ignorance, or how the importance of a piece of information can be based purely on the context of the day it was told to you. Again, Icannot say thisenough: you have to go and watch Jury Duty.

But before that, you should watch The Jury: Murder Trial (26 February, 9pm, Channel 4), which is actually a different show, despite having a similar name and, in many ways, a similar premise. First, itas in Britain a Chelmsford in Essex, which feels contextually important. Second, no laughs. Itas a re-enactment of a real murder trial, done with (very good) actors, based word for word on court transcripts. All the jurors know itas a fake trial being re-enacted for TV. But what they donat know is, right next to them, using a different staircase and having their discussions in a different room, is an entire other jury. Two juries, one very real fake trial, some phenomenally forthcoming to-camera admissions and an insight into the jury system that has never been seen before. But also, one very huge and pressing question: will the two juries come to the same conclusion? If yes a| cool, I guess? If no a| well, actually, this might turn out to be one of the most terrifying series ever to air on TV.

The Book of Love by Kelly Link review a a magical debut of life after life

From https:

In the celebrated short-story writeras first novel, three resurrected teenagers must use magic to determine their fates

The Book of Love is the much-anticipated debut novel from Kelly Link, whose short stories have made her a Pulitzer prize finalist. Often magical and uncanny, unfailingly funny, they cover everything from virtual boyfriends to faery handbags, plus legions of creepy rabbits.

This is another modern fairytale, with shades of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. At the centre are three teenagers: Laura, Daniel and Mo. Ayear ago, they died; now they find themselves brought back to life in the music room of the local high school. The man who has brought them back is the eerie Mr Anabin, who tells them only that they must now learn magic a although he wonat be teaching them how. Meanwhile, a sinister stranger has come along with them, seemingly a handsome man, but perhaps something quite different. This is Bogomil, who says that two of them will go back to the dark, frightening not-place theyave just escaped. In order to avoid that fate, they must findout how they died, work out how to use magic, and recognise it when itasbeing used against them.

Chicken and celery stew and aubergine kuku: Yotam Ottolenghias Persian recipes

A chicken, herb and celery stew with almonds and a return visit to an old friend: the Persian frittata known as kuku, made with aubergine and onions and studded with lemony currants

Some people are sure they were a particular animal in a previous life. The swimmer was a dolphin, maybe, and the pilot a bird, but me? Iam only certain that I was at a Persian dinner table at some earlier point in life, and my love for Persian food was signed, sealed and stamped for ever more. Or maybe I just adore turmeric-stained, saffron-infused, barberry-spiked and flaked almond-topped food so much that it makes me feel poetic. Either way, the gift of Persian cuisine, which somehow pulls off both abundance and balance at exactly the same time, is one that transports me every time.

Road to ruins: how I discovered the magic of archaeology
Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2024 07:00:21 GMT
From https:

With millennia of history hidden beneath our feet, connecting with the ancient past offers endless fascination, and many ways to get involved

When I was a teenager, I watched a TV documentary about a frozen human body that had been discovered at the summit of Mount Ampato in Peru. Dubbed aJuanitaa or the Incan ice mummy, this girl had been a human sacrifice, killed in about 1450 at the age of 14 or so a the same age I was. Her body had mummified, preserved in the permafrost, which meant her clothes, her hair, even her stomach, containing her last meal, were all still intact.

Using a battery of scientific techniques, as well as historical and anthropological knowledge, the anthropologist-archaeologist-mountaineers who discovered Juanita were able to unpick the story of her final months, weeks and hours. I was astounded to learn that discovering and explaining such mysteries could be an actual job. Anthropology and archaeology, and the challenge of making the strange familiar, and the familiar strange, had a hold on me.

Iave known Ivan Cantu for 20 years. I also know the day he is due to die. Cantu, 50, has been on death row since 2001. I first met him a few years later when I moved to Texas from England. In the two decades Iave covered the death penalty in the US, Cantu has helped me understand what inmates go through in one of the Americaas most notorious prisons, and his own story of how he got there a a story that, if his execution goes ahead, will end on Wednesday at 6pm.

That story is complicated. Cantu was convicted of killing his cousin and his cousinas fiancA(c)e in November 2000 as a result of a drug dispute. But heas always denied it. There was no physical evidence proving he was at the crime scene a no fingerprints, shoe prints, DNA.

Wicked Little Letters review a a deliciously sweary poison-pen mystery

The true tale of a foul-mouthed scribbler in 1920s Sussex is given nuance by a stellar cast including Olivia Colman, Jessie Buckley, Anjana Vasan and Timothy Spall

Before X or Twitter or even YouTube, if you wanted to vent your rage at an unjust world on a blameless bystander you had to go to the trouble of actually writing a letter and posting it. These were the days of the poison pen letter, an early 20th-century socio-criminal phenomenon here revived by comedian Jonny Sweetas gleefully sweary script and a competent ensemble of British comedyas finest directed by Thea Sharrock.

Swearwords, you see, can be very funny a especially when primly pronounced by a pious spinster such as Edith (Olivia Colman), who seems to be the letter writeras primary target. Or when spurting forth from a potty-mouthed slattern such as Edithas neighbour Rose (Jessie Buckley), on whom suspicion immediately falls. And these swearwords are particularly funny a a collection of naughty non sequiturs and rococo rantings that derive from the real letters of the Littlehampton libels, a forgotten scandal that terrorised this small Sussex town in the early 1920s. aPiss-country whorea? aFoxy-assed rabbit-fuckera? Epithets this fruity are clearly beyond the wit of man to invent. (And thereas your first clue to the letter writeras identity.)

Raye glides her voice up an octave or two a cappella, then rattles off a melisma almost as an afterthought. The south London singer-songwriter holds a note for what seems an impossibly long time. Soon after, she fusses about her hair and explains how if sheas fiddling around under her skirt, sheas just adjusting a sweaty mic pack. Raye asks the crowd for clemency if a nipple pops out of her corset dress. aThere are some great photo-editing apps,a she jokes.

The nightas theme is, apparently, honesty, and Rachel Keen is the kind of glamorous pop star who, like Adele before her, shrinks the room by gassing about nerdy detail or confiding secrets of the trade.

The futuristic landmark is to become a hotel: fine. In charge of the project? A designer who likes to put his mark on things

In his 1994 movie London, a classic of poetical-geographical film-making, its director-writer Patrick Keiller speculates that the BT tower, that rises on the site that once contained a flat inhabited by Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud, is a secret monument to the French poetsa love. This is one of many instances of this structureas ability to generate myths a legend also had it that, as military secret, it couldnat be shown on Ordnance Survey maps. With its slender vertical fuselage and long-stalled revolving restaurant, it speaks of the hopeful futurism of the 1960s, of the white heat of technology, of Minis and miniskirts and the Beatles.

Its sale, for APS275m, by BT to a hotel group, if it gives the tower a secure future, is welcome. Iam more troubled by the reports that the designer Thomas Heatherwick is to arepurposea the building. His past work shows that heas not one to leave well alone, but rather festoon structures with over-sized flower-pots and look-at-me swirling shapes. One can only hope that he discovers some restraint. The BT Tower is already an icon. Itas perfect. Let it be.

After this weekas Julian Assange court hearing, this is clear: extradition would amount to a death sentence | Duncan Campbell

At the high court, lawyers posed the pivotal question: how can exposing crime and torture be worse than committing them?

Which is the more serious criminal activity: extrajudicial killings, routine torture of prisoners and illegal renditions carried out by a state, or exposing those actions by publishing illegally leaked details of how, where, when and by whom they were committed?

That is essentially the question that was asked this week at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. It has sometimes seemed during the proceedings that the ornate building at the end of Fleet Street, opened by Queen Victoria in 1882, had become more of a theatre than a court. Outside, vast crowds gathered, chanted, listened to speeches, halted traffic and asked passing drivers to hoot their support. Inside, some of the UKas leading barristers, watched by journalists from all over the world, spelled out the plot to packed public galleries in overflow courts. This drama started more than a decade ago, yet only now are we approaching the final act.

A family member who works for the Kyiv D!ity State Administration, recently told me about a colleague. She is a single mother with a 10-year-old son. After hearing a recent explosion during one of the air raids, she fainted; her son, convinced she had died, knocked on the neighbouras door asking for help at 3am.

Two months later, she quit her job at the administrationas housing department, which, on top of its regular work, is now reviewing requests for financial compensation from Kyiv residents whose flats were damaged by recent missile attacks. They have two months to provide residents with decisions. They often work from 7am till 11pm, rushing home just before the curfew. Her resignation has taken a toll on the others.

I have done battle with the Libertines three times over the past 19 years. Only I havenat, not really. Two of the interviews were with Pete Doherty for projects away from the band that made him famous: Babyshambles and the Puta Madres. The first was in a mangy London hotel bedroom in 2005 a he was sitting on a motorbike, revving it up, when he was awake. Much of the time he was asleep. He was 26, surrounded by drugs paraphernalia, and had daubed aROUGH TRADEa on the wall in his own blood. Last time we met, four years ago, he was in better nick and more sociable. That said, he was still smoking crack, threw a punch that just missed me, kissed my forehead by way of apology, and took me to his wreck of a house where he tried to flog me his possessions. He still had something about him: a wasted brilliance and surprising charm that he failed to hide, despite his best efforts.

As for his soul brother and sparring partner Carl BarAC/t, I met him in 2006 when he was also recovering from the Libertines. BarAC/t had just formed Dirty Pretty Things and the band was releasing its first album. He was quiet, likable, and profoundly depressed. BarAC/t talked a lot about aEvil Carla, the self-destructive side of him that had a downer on life. In a different way, you worried as much for the future of BarAC/t as for Doherty.

From thrilling Edwardian short stories about Sherlock Holmes, to the jaded gumshoes of 20th-century American pulp fiction, the figure of the lone private investigator, who watches from a shadowy street corner, has been chiefly assumed to be a male role. But now a new historic examination, to be discussed at the London Library on Thursday, is changing all that.

Fresh research has revealed that, in real life, women have been at the sleuthing game for as long as men. And they were, in fact, often more sought-after due to their particular skillsets. Private Inquiries: The Secret History of Female Sleuths, published by the History Press, has assembled the recent work of historian Caitlin Davies, now newly qualified as a private investigator herself, to tell the story of leading British lights of this secretive trade.

aAm I surprised Pete Doherty is still alive? No, heas too smart to diea: the Libertines on feuds, friendship a and their unlikely sober reunion
Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2024 08:00:21 GMT
From https:

Itas 20 years since they topped the charts a then fought, stagnated and imploded. But now Pete Doherty and Carl BarAC/t are back. Was it easy recording together again? Depends who you ask a|

I have done battle with the Libertines three times over the past 19 years. Only I havenat, not really. Two of the interviews were with Pete Doherty for projects away from the band that made him famous: Babyshambles and the Puta Madres. The first was in a mangy London hotel bedroom in 2005 a he was sitting on a motorbike, revving it up, when he was awake. Much of the time he was asleep. He was 26, surrounded by drugs paraphernalia, and had daubed aROUGH TRADEa on the wall in his own blood. Last time we met, four years ago, he was in better nick and more sociable. That said, he was still smoking crack, threw a punch that just missed me, kissed my forehead by way of apology, and took me to his wreck of a house where he tried to flog me his possessions. He still had something about him: a wasted brilliance and surprising charm that he failed to hide, despite his best efforts.

As for his soul brother and sparring partner Carl BarAC/t, I met him in 2006 when he was also recovering from the Libertines. BarAC/t had just formed Dirty Pretty Things and the band was releasing its first album. He was quiet, likable, and profoundly depressed. BarAC/t talked a lot about aEvil Carla, the self-destructive side of him that had a downer on life. In a different way, you worried as much for the future of BarAC/t as for Doherty.

Berlin film festival 2024 roundup a tasty treats and the odd potboiler
Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2024 10:00:23 GMT
From https:

A careworn Cillian Murphy excelled, Atlantics director Mati Diop returned, astronaut Adam Sandler had us drifting off, and kitchen dramas continued to sizzle

Should we be talking about cinema at this yearas Berlin film festival? Not everyone thought so. After a post on X about a podcast discussion I took part in here, someone responded with a photo of Jean-Luc Godard at 1968as politically fraught Cannes film festival, making his famous accusation: aAnd youare talking tracking shots and closeups! Youare idiots!a

The 2024 Berlinale might not have been as turbulent as Cannes 68, but given the state of the world, mere movie talk risked seeming frivolous. This yearas festival was prefaced by the controversial inviting, then disinviting, of politicians from Germanyas far-right Alternative fA1/4r Deutschland party to the opening ceremony. It was also marked by pro-Palestine demonstrations at the industry market and by complaints from festival staff that the Berlinale was not taking a clear stance on the Gaza conflict. At their opening press conference, the competition jury headed by actor Lupita Nyongao faced more questions about their political positions than about cinema.

After this weekas Julian Assange court hearing, this is clear: extradition would amount to a death sentence | Duncan Campbell
Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2024 07:00:23 GMT
From https:

At the high court, lawyers posed the pivotal question: how can exposing crime and torture be worse than committing them?

Which is the more serious criminal activity: extrajudicial killings, routine torture of prisoners and illegal renditions carried out by a state, or exposing those actions by publishing illegally leaked details of how, where, when and by whom they were committed?

That is essentially the question that was asked this week at the Royal Courts of Justice in London. It has sometimes seemed during the proceedings that the ornate building at the end of Fleet Street, opened by Queen Victoria in 1882, had become more of a theatre than a court. Outside, vast crowds gathered, chanted, listened to speeches, halted traffic and asked passing drivers to hoot their support. Inside, some of the UKas leading barristers, watched by journalists from all over the world, spelled out the plot to packed public galleries in overflow courts. This drama started more than a decade ago, yet only now are we approaching the final act.

The Jury: Murder Trial a this legal experiment might be the most terrifying TV series ever
Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2024 07:00:23 GMT
From https:

One real-life murder case is reenacted, while two separate juries debate a verdict. This enthralling look at our judiciary shows how worryingly easily 12 people can be swayed

If you remember last year a wasnat that long ago, keep up a you might remember Jury Duty, a reality hoax series on Prime Video that was my personal show of the year. The format was amazing, so simple and so deft: a completely fake courthouse was set up in LA, where every member of the prosecution and defence, and every other member of the jury, was an actor. Then, at the centre, was the one normal guy who wasnat in on the facade, Ronald Gladden. It was an extraordinary logistical achievement, and the show simply wouldnat have worked if Gladden himself wasnat a sweet, wholesome, open-hearted person. But despite being played for comedy, it managed to say some interesting stuff about the legal system in the US. It showed how easily a room full of 12 people can be swayed, by a well-told story or a shared trauma or just ignorance, or how the importance of a piece of information can be based purely on the context of the day it was told to you. Again, Icannot say thisenough: you have to go and watch Jury Duty.

But before that, you should watch The Jury: Murder Trial (26 February, 9pm, Channel 4), which is actually a different show, despite having a similar name and, in many ways, a similar premise. First, itas in Britain a Chelmsford in Essex, which feels contextually important. Second, no laughs. Itas a re-enactment of a real murder trial, done with (very good) actors, based word for word on court transcripts. All the jurors know itas a fake trial being re-enacted for TV. But what they donat know is, right next to them, using a different staircase and having their discussions in a different room, is an entire other jury. Two juries, one very real fake trial, some phenomenally forthcoming to-camera admissions and an insight into the jury system that has never been seen before. But also, one very huge and pressing question: will the two juries come to the same conclusion? If yes a| cool, I guess? If no a| well, actually, this might turn out to be one of the most terrifying series ever to air on TV.

Dubbed aJuanitaa or the Incan ice mummy, this girl had been a human sacrifice, killed in about 1450 at the age of 14 or so a the same age I was. Her body had mummified, preserved in the permafrost, which meant her clothes, her hair, even her stomach, containing her last meal, were all still intact.

Using a battery of scientific techniques, as well as historical and anthropological knowledge, the anthropologist-archaeologist-mountaineers who discovered Juanita were able to unpick the story of her final months, weeks and hours. I was astounded to learn that discovering and explaining such mysteries could be an actual job. Anthropology and archaeology, and the challenge of making the strange familiar, and the familiar strange, had a hold on me.
