"For those of you who were unlucky enough to miss this year's Theakston's Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival at Harrogate last weekend, there's a chance to get a taster of what went on. Tomorrow, BBC Radio 4's Front Row programme will be a Harrogate special, featuring interviews and conversations with several of the participating writers. Among other elements, Mark Billingham and David Roberts debate whether there's still a place for Snobbery With Violence, while I have a wide-ranging chat with Lee Child, Laura Lippman and Natasha Cooper. It's all under the command of the unflappable Mark Lawson, who demonstrated over the weekend a remarkable wit and erudition.You can listen online, live and also up to seven days from broadcast.
It goes out live at 7.15 on Wednesday 25th July. It's a half hour programme, so you'll still have time for dinner before Wire in the Blood at 9pm on ITV."
