Glasgow Crime Stories

#1 Arthur Thompson and the murder of his son Arthur Thompson Jnr


In our first episode, we delve into Glasgow's infamous crime godfather, Arthur Thompson, and the murder of his son. For more than 30 years – until his death in 1993 – Arthur Thompson ruled Glasgow’s criminal underworld with an iron fist through his interests in extortion, money lending, illegal casinos, robbery, and drugs. 


Narrated by Alex Norton. Words by Norman Silvester, produced by Ema Sabljak for the Glasgow Times.
