Publisher's Summary

Robin Glendinning's BBC Radio 4 full-cast black comedy telling the story of a real mystery. Originally broadcast in the Saturday Play slot on 11 July 2009.

In 1946, the Duke of Windsor (formerly Edward VIII) and his wife (formerly Wallis Simpson) paid a visit to Britain, hoping to secure a government job for the Duke and a title for the Duchess. During the visit, the Duchess' jewels, worth millions, were stolen. Conspiracy theories abounded. Was it an inside job by the Royal Family, or even an insurance fraud by the Duke and Duchess?

Starring Jon Glover as the Duke of Windsor, Christine Kavanagh as the Duchess of Windsor and Christian Rodska as Capstick. Also with Chris Yapp, Amy Clifton, Alan Moore, Paul Humpoletz, David Collins, Stephen Perring and Paul Mohan.

utter rubbish

ok if you want some background noise. Story is flimsy with lack of depth with more concern of how the royal couple felt than with the robbery
