Combining rare access to Agatha's family, her personal archive and speaking to those who know her work best, discover what made the world's most successful crime writer tick.
Agatha Christie's England: There is no more quintessentially English writer than Agatha Christie. Through her sensational murder mysteries, she created a literary universe that captured the national spirit like no one before or since. But the magical worlds where she set her stories are, in fact, drawn from real places. Retracing Agatha's footsteps across England, see how Agatha drew on her surroundings as a magpie would, as both the people, and the places she encountered, found themselves immortalized in her extraordinary canon of work."

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
