A dramatic trilogy of programmes which transmitted stripped across three nights
A distinctive, unfolding picture of a horrific murder from the time the crime was initially reported
Filmed over 18 months, with intimate and unprecedented access to a police major crime unit in Bristol as they investigated the stabbing of a 19 year-old man, this crime documentary series broke new ground. The trilogy was uniquely shot as a drama – weaving together the real-time stories of three different worlds: a detective faced with an apparently motiveless crime, a family desperate for justice and another who ‘ll do anything to save their son from a life behind bars.
