Ngaio Marsh Theatre - Died in the Wool

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1978

Died in the Wool was part of an anthology series adapting the murder mysteries of Dame Ngaio Marsh. MP Flossie Rubrick has been found dead in a wool bale, and it's up to Inspector Roderick Alleyn (English actor George Baker — Z Cars, I, Claudius) to unravel the secrets of a South Island sheep station. The tale of a cultured Englishman amidst World War II spies, Bach and seamy colonial crimes found a global audience. It was the first New Zealand television drama to screen in the United States (on PBS). Included is a Cluedo-style sitting room inquest and a wool shed reveal.

I am a New Zealander but all my relations live in England.
– Ursula Harme (Ilona Rodgers)
