The Last Hours of Laura K: The BBC's immersive murder mystery set in the world of social media

The Last Hours of Laura K

An immersive online murder mystery and ground-breaking digital experience placing the audience at the heart of the story.

Using 24 hours of footage from the fictional surveillance programme SATURNEYE, 'The Last Hours of Laura K' is a disconcertingly intimate, unfiltered and impartial look into Laura’s last hours before her death.

The 24-hour video file is only half of the story. To find the killer, users have to immerse themselves in the characters’ digital lives via their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram profiles, looking for clues and motives seeded by our writers over months to help them identify the killer.

The Last Hours of Laura K launched on Monday 30 March 2015.

French air-traffic controllers belonging to the SNCTA union... will strike on nine days between Wednesday and 2 May, starting with a 48-hour stoppage.

French airspace is the busiest in Europe, with an average of 8,000 flights a day.

Many passengers who are simply intending to fly over France face disruption. From UK airports, the most direct routes to a wide range of southern European destinations pass through French airspace.

From London’s airports, the most direct tracks to Athens and Dubrovnik in the east and Santiago and Lisbon in the west normally go through French airspace.

Passengers with easyJet booked for Wednesday and Thursday are advised to check the status of their flights online before going to the airport.

This is "bearly" credible, was she "pandering" to his animal instincts?

I think she wanted to try a few numbers from the menu.

The reopening of the Waverley railway, axed in 1969, shows that trains are increasingly seen as the solution to Britain’s infrastructure troubles

Nice article! I am heartened to see that steam will return as well! It will do wonders for tourism in the area.


BBC4 @ 22:00 (BST) tonight: The Titfield Thunderbolt - a 1953 British comedy film about a group of villagers trying to keep their branch line operating after British Railways decide to close it.

Will probably give it a miss in favour of Code of a Killer and Bluestone 42 but I quite like many of the old 1950's films, watched The Dam Busters yet again the other night. Quite mystified me as the announcer kept repeating a warning about 'offensive language' - in a 1955 film? Then it hit me... the Wing Commander's dog was named 'Nigger'. Hey ho.
