Four-part drama series about the British juicidal system, dealing with an investigation presented from the perspectives of the police force, the criminal, the solicitor and the prison system.

GF Newman's dissection of the justice system - adapted from his book, Sir, You Bastard - upset the establishment to the extent that the BBC director-general was summoned to the Home Office and told that it should not be repeated nor sold abroad. Apart from screenings at the National Film Theatre, this was the case for 30 years until the programme was finally released on DVD. It was repeated on UK TV (on BBC2) for the first time in March and April 2009
