The Case of the MP Who Vanished

July 26th, 2014

Episode 5 of 14 episodes

Steve Punt turns private investigator and examines the curious case of the socialist MP Victor Grayson who vanished into thin air! Firebrand politician, champion of the mill workers, scion of the establishment, fancy dresser, hard drinker, man about town. Victor Grayson was many things when he erupted onto the public stage in 1907 as the first and last independent socialist MP, aged 26. However this shooting star disappeared from sight in 1920, under mysterious circumstances, with no confirmed sightings after that. Punt P.I. sets out on a trail through Yorkshire valleys, dusty archives and seedy Soho to pick up clues to Victor's disappearance. Producer Neil McCarthy.
