What TV’s on at the RTS in October? Including Traces and Britannia – season two

RTS is taking a leaf out of BAFTA’s book in terms of sneaking out events without telling anyone. Notably, tomorrow, at 6.30pm at 30 Euston Square, London NW1 2FB, it’s organising an exclusive screening of UKTV’s new crime drama, Traces. Not much notice, hey?

Anyway, said screening will be followed by a Q&A with cast and crew, as well as “lots of food, drink and forensic science!”

Why forensic science? Well, it’s based on an original idea by best-selling crime writer Val McDermid and explores the world of the Scottish Institute of Forensic Science and Anatomy.

Who are the cast and crew? Well, it’s written by Amelia Bullmore and directed by Rebecca Gatward and Mary Nighy. It stars Molly Windsor, Laura Fraser, Jennifer Spence, and Martin Compston, as well as Laurie Brett, Vincent Regan, Michael Nardone and John Gordon Sinclair.

How many of them will be showing up? Well… dunno.

Good luck finding any of details of that on the RTS web site, but you can book tickets here.

Fortunately, there are more details about the other new showing this month (here are the other ones).
