    New Tricks [#303] Old Dogs A spate of violent dog killings 30 years ago provoked an outcry from the public, but the investigating team was never able to identify the killer. When a dog is found dead on Hampstead Heath, with the same MO as the original killings, the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad (UCOS) is asked to re-examine the case: no-one else in the Force wants to know. Reluctantly, Pullman and her team pick up the baton. Standing and Lane set off to visit the original suspect, John Fletcher, who works at a local abattoir. Much to dog-loving Lane's disgust, Fletcher does nothing to disguise his hatred of man's best friend, which is all Lane needs to convince him that this must be their man. There is a pattern in the killings. Pullman and Halford visit James Farlow, a canine protection society field officer at the time of the original killings, who is now preoccupied with nursing his dying wife. Halford sympathizes - a dangerous thing to do in any investigation: will he take his eye off the ball and allow emotion to cloud his judgment? Farlow recalls that one of the dog owners during the original investigation had made an unusual request. When the team visits the dog owner, Professor Styles, a "blue stocking" museum curator and expert in Egyptology, they make an alarming discovery. Lane, already struggling to cope with the cruelty of the killings, is left shattered when his own dog, Scruffy, dies. Pullman insists he take compassionate leave. However, it is Halford's deteriorating health that causes the team to really worry. James Farlow is also sympathetic and he knows just the thing to make Halford feel better. duration 50:08   STEREO
  • 4:00 am
    New Tricks [#305] Wicca Work When the UCOS team reinvestigates the suspicious murder of Craig Rossiter, they find themselves at the centre of a plot involving witchcraft, magic and curses. Rossiter, a librarian, had been a member of a coven and, when he died 10 years ago, there were few clues as to the cause of death. The team has to infiltrate the coven and speak to other members in order to get answers, but the investigation leaves them all feeling very uneasy. With barely any leads, Pullman takes the team to Richmond Park, the scene of Rossiter's death. A young woman, Grace Woodford, appears unexpectedly at the scene, clearly distressed and accompanied by her therapist. Also part of the coven, Grace remains traumatized by Rossiter's death but has little memory of the sequence of events leading up to it. But Grace is able to provide the names of other coven members, including Rhoda Wishaw, a white witch living in Ashdown forest. Standing and Lane visit Rhoda to question her and, after sampling her special tea, both leave feeling strangely intoxicated; Lane is eager to see Ester, and Standing any of his ex-wives. On their second visit, the special tea leaves them both confused and having hallucinations, so Rhoda takes the opportunity to disappear. Halford is also experiencing some unexplained visions involving his dead wife, Mary, and becomes convinced that he has been cursed by the coven. But the case takes a sinister turn when Lane visits the library where Rossiter used to work and discovers that his death may have been the result of human sacrifice. duration 50:06   STEREO

    Moyers & Company [#146H] What It's Like to Go to War America has been at war for over a decade, with millions of soldiers having seen death and dying up close in Afghanistan and Iraq. But most Americans -- watching comfortably on their TVs and computers, witness to statistics, speeches, and "expert" rhetoric -- don't get what's really going on there. In an encore edition of Moyers & Company (check local listings), Bill talks to Karl Marlantes - a highly-decorated Vietnam veteran, Rhodes Scholar, author, and PTSD survivor - about what we on the insulated outside need to understand about the minds and hearts of our modern warriors. Marlantes shares with Bill intimate stories about how his battlefield experiences both shaped him and nearly destroyed him, even after returning to civilian life. "'Thou shalt not kill' is a tenet you just do not violate, and so all your young life, that's drilled into your head," Marlantes tells Bill. "And then suddenly, you're 18 or 19 and they're saying, 'Go get 'em and kill for your country.' And then you come back and it's like, 'Well, thou shalt not kill' again. Believe me, that's a difficult thing to deal with." "You take a young man and put him in the role of God, where he is asked to take a life -- that's something no 19-year-old is able to handle." What it's like to go to war. Next on Moyers & Company. duration 52:46   STEREO TVG
