News reporter Fred Dinenage returns for a second series of Murder Casebook as he takes another look at the infamous murderers of twentieth century Britain. The motives, methods and consequences of serious crimes come under scrutiny as Dinenage implements modern techniques including forensic science and criminology to see if he can undercover any new information.

In the first episode of the new series, Fred Dinenage looks at the life of Lord Lucan, the aristocrat with a lavish lifestyle, whose life spiralled out of control after a bitter divorce and custody battle for his children and looming debts. Lucan hatched a plan to murder his wife which went horribly wrong when he murdered the nanny, mistaking her for Lady Lucan. Realising his mistake he went on to attack his estranged wife, who escaped with severe injuries and then vanished without a trace. Will modern technology be able to solve the Lord Lucan mystery?

The Murder Casebook crew came to Cobham Hall and used the library for the talking head interviews, providing a setting evocative of the law. Cobham Hall is an outstanding private school set within a historic country estate in Gravesham and has a stunning ball room, modern sports facilities and swimming pool. Cobham Hall is a popular filming location and has been seen on screen many times in Wild Child (2008) and Bleak House (2005).

The Lord Lucan episode of Crime Fred Dinenage: Murder Casebook airs on 7th October 2012 at 21:00 on the Crime & Investigation Network (Channel 553 on Sky and 237 on Virgin).
