The true story of one of the most intriguing controversies of Edwardian Britain.
In 1903 a brown dog was cruelly experimented on in University College LONDON.
Thanks to Louise Lind-Af-Hageby, a Swedish woman medical student, this led to eight years of riots, libel trials, 24 hour police protection, a controversial statue, and gave a kick start to Britain's animal rights movement.
Dramatised for radio by Tony Coult from the book The Brown Dog Affair by Peter Mason.
