In 1961 Newry man Robert McGladdery was convicted and executed for the brutal murder of local girl Pearl Gamble. His trial caused a media storm and proved a landmark in the debate on capital punishment in the United Kingdom.

Now for the first time, using never-before-seen police evidence and private court papers, BBC Northern Ireland tells the story.
