North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 13 February, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 on North Manchester FM for another Helping of History. This week, I’m going to be talking about the ‘scandal case’ of George Victor Townley, the son of a wealthy merchant from Hendham Vale. In 1863, Townley was convicted of murdering Bessie Goodwin, his ex-fiancĂ©e – but, strangely, this isn’t where the scandal lies. Find out what happened next on Tuesday’s show!

In addition to this, as always, I’ll be reading Yesterday’s Papers. And you can pit your wits against the Who Am I? quiz – just how well do you know North Manchester’s iconic buildings?

Tune in on Tuesday at 12 on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
