It's 100 years since the publication of Agatha Christie’s first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles.
It was the moment that one of the most famous detectives of all time, Hercule Poirot was introduced to the world, and marked the debut novel for the bestselling fiction writer of all time.

These enduringly popular murder mysteries depict an era long gone, and remind us of the brilliance of her literature.
The programme includes footage from many of the classic dramas that were based on her novels – from the original radio productions to latter day TV dramas as talking heads loosely explain the plot.
As well as enjoying the unforgettable characters and griping narratives, each novel also reveals something about Christie’s life at the time it was written.
