(From the story by Donald Taylor). “Written in the form of a film scenario, it is a gripping and dramatic story, based on the case of the murderers Burke and Hare in Edinburgh more than 100 years ago. Two keepers of a slum lodging-house murder the weakest and loneliest of their lodgers in exchange for money from Thomas Rock, the brilliant lecturer in anatomy.”
