  • Crimewatch deals with unsolved crimes which the police need help with either in the form of identification or information.

    8.5
    Crimewatch deals with unsolved crimes which the police need help with either in the form of identification, information or to nudge the memories of potential witnesses. The crimes involved are frequently serious and frightening and come from all over the country. Some show just how cowardly some criminals can be in their brutal or just plain sadistic crimes against defenceless old people and children. The presenters of this programme have changed a number of times over the years, with one of the present being an ex-policeman who used to request help on the programme.

    The programme always ends with one of the presenters wishing everyone a good night's sleep and not to have nightmares!moreless
