Highlights : The Week Ahead


DRAMA

Murder In Mind,

Saturday, BBC1, 9.00pm

DAME Diana Rigg is the latest big name star to join the cast of spine-chilling psychological thriller series Murder In Mind.

In Suicide, the police are confronted with a suspicious death and must determine whether it was suicide or murder. Jill Craig (Rigg) is found dead in her bed by the police.

At first they believe it is suicide but, having received the pathologist's report, they become suspicious.

The series draws on more than one million feet of original film, hundreds of exclusive veteran interviews and contemporary diaries, letters and reports from the war.

The first episode considers the military and political background of World War I.

At the turn of the century, Germany had emerged as a major world power.

Second only to the Americans in industrial might, Germany was also in the grip of a fervent nationalism - it began to build a mighty sea fleet and was looking to exert its influence far and wide.
