A DVD of CSI Portsmouth 2012, which was held on 3 November as part of Portsmouth Bookfest, featuring crime authors Stephen Booth, Ann Cleeves, Matt Hilton and Pauline Rowson has now been released and is on sale as a two disk set.
Over a hundred and sixty people attended the one day event held in Portsmouth, England, to hear what police and crime experts had to say about their work and to listen to the crime authors talking about their novels. They were grilled by Cheryl Buggy, Station Director of Express FM radio, in two lively panel debates of crime fiction versus crime fact.
Joining authors Stephen Booth, Matt Hilton and Pauline Rowson in the morning are Carolyn Lovell, Crime Scene Manager/Coordinator for Hampshire Police, DC Terry Fitzjohn, Fire Investigation Officer for Hampshire Police, and Watch Manager Andy Earl from Hampshire Fire and Rescue Services.
Joining Ann Cleeves and Pauline Rowson in the afternoon are Adrian Fretter, from the Hi-Tech Crime Unit of Hampshire Police, fraud expert Dr Mark Button from the University of Portsmouth, Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, and Professor Bran Nicol an expert on crime culture and stalking from the University of Surrey.
Running time: 2hrs. 17 mins.
CSI Portsmouth 2013 will take place on Saturday 2 November.
