Notes, topics or text
A script for the series "Tried by their Peers" on Frank Russell's trial for bigamy in 1901.
"Of all cases involving trial by Peers, the most remarkable in this respect was that late Victorian scandal, rivalling those of Sir Charles Dilke or Oscar Wilde, in which the second Earl Russell was tried by the House of Lords for bigamy, after ten years of legal battles in the Divorce Court, the Central Criminal Court, and Courts of Appeal."
Russell letter no.
