Crime and Punishment Series 2

72 Films | Channel 4 | 13/08/20

Full post production on the 5 x 60 minute documentary series for Channel 4.

BAFTA-nominated Crime and Punishment, returns to examine our Criminal Justice system.

Four years in the making and filmed over two, and with access to the MOJ, Police, the CPS, Defence lawyers, Probation, The Parole board, HMP Winchester, Victim Support and numerous other organisations and services in the system, for the first time ever, this series explores the width and breadth of Justice in our country.

This series focuses on the challenges and dilemmas, and how successive governments and a decade of cuts have impacted the system and the British public.

It starts by looking at the vastly underfunded police, struggling with increasing allegations of rape, where convictions are at an all-time low with harrowing consequences. It also investigates the increase in reports of domestic violence, young offenders and the human cost to the ASBO nation, the fallout from huge national cases such as Savile’s historic sex abuse scandals, the impact of a 30% cut to the Crown Prosecution Service's budget, and the consequences of the part privatisation of the probation service.

Each episode tells intimate stories of those caught up in the system, from various perspectives, and through an innovative use of archive, gives the narratives historical and political context.
