No Ceremony For The Dead by Shane Dunphy on Audible

Child protection expert and author Shane Dunphy has just released the final instalment in his true-crime trilogy for Audible, Stories from the Margins. It documents crimes Shane encountered as a journalist.

The final chapter, entitled No Ceremony for the Dead, focuses on St Patricks residential home, an institutional abuser and a missing person. It’s part-memoir, part-true crime and is told with compassion and sensitivity.

 

WATCH
Bamous, 11.15pm BBC One


A one-off half-hour comedy show that originally aired last week, this is your opportunity to catch Dane Bapiste at his funniest and most fiery. It’s a series of sketches that centre around the mythical NASBLAQ – a Stock index for diverse talent which determines which of them are allowed up and down the ladder of fame and success at any one time. The show takes on the prejudices and blindspots of white-dominated institutions like the BBC and is as insightful and funny as it is stinging. 

From bowing in front of a huge picture of Pheobe Waller-Bridge to flipping the hollow tokenism of support from largely white marketing and production teams, it’s a must-watch so hit record if you can’t stay up past 11.
