RUNNING MAN One of the perpetrators was not apprehended for three months


You may be interested in my memory of the Shepherd’s Bush murders of 1966 (issue 61). I was born in 1958 and was living in Leytonstone, East London. Although I was only eight years old, it was one of those dreadful events that stays in the memory On the Sunday after the murders, our Sunday school, which was St John’s Church, put pictures on the wall in the church hall and we all prayed for their families. My second memory is that we all went on a church outing in a coach, and for some reason my Dad came along. Apart from the coach driver, he was the only male amongst all the women and children. I can still see him in my mind’s eye sitting at the back of the coach. Every vehicle was stopped and searched by the police, and my Dad was questioned. Let us hope this type of dreadful event never happens again. PS – I am really enjoying your magazine. My local newsagent saves it for me.

About BBC History Revealed

Despite being one of the most talked about artworks in history, the Mona Lisa remains enshrined in mystery. And while we will never know what she was smiling about, we explore what we do now know about the world's most famous painting. Plus: We look at the story of Robert the Bruce's fight for Scottish independence, the Nazi Occupation of the Channel Islands and the reign of Queen Anne, which saw the creation of Great Britain.
