y r e t s y M g Sprin n o h t a r a M YOUR FAVORITE DETECTIVES ARE BACK ON WYCC PBS CHICAGO FOR TWO FULL DAYS OF INTRIGUE, DECEPTION, AND CRIME-FIGHTING. Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries Life of Crime In a story spanning three decades, an impulsive rookie policewoman becomes obsessed with tracking down the killer of a 15-year-old girl. The choices she makes in the early stage of her career will have long-lasting and explosive repercussions on both her professional and personal life.

The independent, glamorous, and unflappable leading lady detective Phryne Fisher is back to solve crimes in 1920s Melbourne. She mounts gun fights with the mafia, climbs tall buildings to rescue the helpless, performs deathdefying feats of escapology, and battles villains.

New Tricks The 12th and final season of this beloved show includes bodies in the basement, skeletons in swimming pools, and lottery syndicates gone fatally wrong. The UCOS team must pull together more than ever to uncover the city’s long-buried secrets and bring justice to the streets of London.

Dalziel and Pascoe Masterpiece: Sherlock The world’s only consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, teams up with his longsuffering and faithful friend, Dr. John Watson, to solve a dizzying array of crimes and battle diabolical villains. Sherlock uses his signature deductive reasoning and his stunning lack of social grace.

DCI Banks An explosive serial crime story begins when the victim of an attack is found in a woodland. Banks uncovers a link to a local crime boss and formulates a theory of his own. The team is also having a painful job finding out how a recent tragedy occurred. It all comes down to one man. 6

Enjoy these programs and more on Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 16 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. See page 13 for the full schedule.

The blunt-talking, politically incorrect Andy Dalziel once again pairs up with his younger, fasttracked sidekick, Peter Pascoe. The two investigate a death that involves Dalziel’s ex-lover. They also learn about the death of a soccer team manager and the skeletons in his family’s closet.

Shetland

Masterpiece Mystery! Death Comes to Pemberley

The Shetland Isles provides a stunning Scottish backdrop to the murder mysteries taking place there. Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez and his team investigate crime within the close-knit island community. The team must figure out who is connected and why, before it’s too late.

Six years after Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy have prevailed over pride and prejudice, a coach races up to Pemberley with a hysterical Lydia shrieking, “Murder!” A nightmare ensues and a scandal mounts, threatening Pemberley and everything Mr. and Mrs. Darcy hold dear.

ONE-MINUTE BIOGRAPHY with

Flannery O’Connor

Novelist and short story writer Flannery O’Connor was born on March 25, 1925, in Savannah, Georgia. She and her family moved to rural Milledgeville, also in Georgia, in 1938. The family farm there is where O’Connor ended up spending most of her time. O’Connor attended Georgia State College for Women, now called Georgia College & State University, for her undergraduate studies. She went on to study creative writing at the University of Iowa’s Writers’ Workshop. Her first short story was published in a magazine in 1946. Her first novel, Wise Blood, was published in 1952. It was later made into a film in 1979. O’Connor continued to write novels and short stories until her death in 1964. Several works were published posthumously. One of them, The Complete Stories, won a National Book Award. O’Connor’s stories were usually set in the rural South and focused on religion in some way. Her family was Roman Catholic, and many of her stories were about the relationship between the individual and God. Learn more about O’Connor’s life and work during Uncommon Grace: The Life of Flannery O’Connor, airing Sunday, April 9 at 4 p.m. on WYCC PBS Chicago.
