The talk is about a trial that took place in Liverpool in 1884. Two sisters were charged with the murder of Thomas Higgins, the husband of the younger sister. There were lots more killings as well which were referred to in evidence and clearly many other women involved as well. The method was arsenic and the motive life insurance. It was not confined to Liverpool, the scheme had been going on all over the country in the poor areas for decades but because the people who were dying were "not important" no one took any notice until this case hit the headlines and the government were forced into action.
