I recorded this R3 feature at the time on an old fashioned cassette tape, which I still have, in case anybody wants to borrow it.

This tragic tale was unknown to me before I heard the programme. I hadn't come across it in any of the usual books about Glasgow murders, probably because the case never went to trial since of course Mr. Biswas committed suicide.
