Investigating the magical world of performance, style and culture in the  Victorian and early 20th Century.

Latest Episode

Young Hitch


'That’s what happens to naughty little boys you see’. 

In this episode we delve into the lesser known early years of a director born at the tail-end of Queen Victoria’s reign. An eclectic mix of East End fish shops, circus, music hall and phobias! And we chat about Dr Jude’s forthcoming graphic novel based on the early influences on ‘Master of Suspense’ Alfred Hitchcock.


We hope you enjoy our podcast and look forward to welcoming you next time.

Please treat us to a cup of coffee via Ko-fi so we can continue our labour of love.

Thank you!
