Crime Scene 2008

The programme for Crime Scene 2008 is now online although public booking is not open until 15th August.
25-27 September

A film and literature festival devoted to the world's most popular fiction genre, TCM Crime Scene is screening at the ICA for the first time this year. We have international previews from around the globe, a Bertrand Tavernier retrospective and special TV events including an evening dedicated to Spooks. The literature section of the festival is based up the road at the rather elegant Waterstone's Piccadilly.
The literary events include appearances by Stella Rimington, Peter James, Christopher Fowler, Anne Perry and the popular Foul Play event by Simon Brett and co which has decamped from Harrogate to Crime Scene. There's also a preview of the new Poirot, Mrs McGinty's Dead, with the possible attendance of David Suchet and I quite fancy going to see OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies.

Thanks, Karen, for the info. I've seen most of these Tavernier films and liked them, esp the one set in Africa, Clean Slate. My favourite is Spoiled Children which I saw years ago and would love to see again, but it isn't in this festival (probably because it isn't crime ;-) ).

On the book events, there is quite a bit of overlap with the authors who were at Harrogate.
