Lady Killers with Lucy Worsley

BBC Sounds

2022

In this series, English historian Lucy Worsley investigates (with the help of others) some extraordinary crimes committed by Victorian era women.

In Episode 6: Amelia Dyer, Worsley explores the story of a 'baby farmer', a woman who took in hundreds of babies to 'help out' those who couldn't keep their 'illiegimate' offspring - for a fee - and then killed them.
