George Fairbrother and the Armstrong & Burton series proudly co-sponsor Oliver Crocker's The Bill Podcast.
The Bill Podcast is produced and hosted by the very talented Oliver Crocker. The Bill was an iconic ITV police series, which ran for nearly 2500 episodes, from 1983 to 2010. Oliver interviews the actors who created iconic characters as well as those who worked behind the scenes, and pays tribute to those no longer with us. You can also become a supporter, and access exclusive content, through Patreon.
The companion volume, Witness Statements, is out now.
The social history and pop culture of twentieth century Britain form the backdrop to George Fairbrother's novels. There's lots to explore on this site, our active social media and Tumblr blog, as well as a special curated collection of images, facts and links on Pinterest, covering British politics, culture, society and a little fun with some classic TV and cinema.
