Ian Holm, "We the accused" by Ernest Raymond is both a love story and a sympathetic study of a murder.

Set in Islington in 1932, the story moves to Sussex and culminates in an exciting police hunt set against the dramatic background of the Lake District.

Also starring Angela Down, Elizabeth Spriggs and Iain Cuthbertson.

The book has been dramatised by Julia Jones, directed by Richard Stroud ans produced by Jonathon Powell in the BBC Classic Serial strand which also brought you "Crime and punishment", "Tinker, taylor, soldier, spy", "Testiment of youth", "Therese Raquin", and "Pride and prejudice".

The haunting sound of this theme is achieved by carefully mixing the sound of a wordless female voice with an Ondes Martenot, a very rare early synthesizer invented in the 1920's in France. The sinister noise in the accompaniment is made by a Cimbalom, a gypsy instrument from Eastern Europe. To heighten the ominous effect, viols are used instead os violins, violas and cellos.
