01Another Kind Of Man By Anya Lipska2015082820190910 (BBC7)
20200905 (R4)
Three newly commissioned stories offering different angles on the Polish experience in London.

Estimates vary but there are now approximately 750,000 Poles living in the UK. And Polish is now the second most spoken language in England. Much of this is the result of immigration since Poland joined the EU in 2004 - but there is also an older community that developed in the years after the Polish Resettlement Act of 1947.

Episode 1: Another Kind of Man by Anya Lipska
Janusz Kiszka stands at the edge of an East End cemetery watching the mourners leave. But who have they just buried?

Anya Lipska's crime thrillers, set in East London, follow the adventures and investigations of Janusz Kiszka, tough guy/fixer to the Polish community and sharp-elbowed young police detective Natalie Kershaw. The third novel in the series - A Devil under the Skin - was published in June 2015. Anya is married to a Pole and lives in East London. Originally trained as a journalist, she now works as a TV producer. Another Kind of Man is her first story for radio.
