    Garrow's Law

    Garrow's Law

    Follow
    BBC
    A British period legal drama set in 18th century London and inspired by the court cases and life of pioneering 18th century barrister William Garrow.
    Garrow is a talented, young barrister determined to install justice into a corrupt legal system of Georgian England. His confrontational and sometimes arrogant stance in the courtroom does not earn him any favours with the political elite and creates enemies within the criminal underground. His associate John Southouse, a solicitor, is often disapproving of Garrow's rebellious attitude, but nevertheless offers him advice and help.
    Each episode features a case inspired by true legal proceedings as recorded at Old Bailey Archives: from rape and murder to high treason and corruption. The real William Garrow coined the phrase: innocent until proven guilty, in an age when defence counsel was for the minority. He was known for his forceful cross-examinations and more than once he offered to defend the accused for free.
    A major subplot is a love story between Garrow and Lady Sarah Hill. Their love affair gradually develops. It begins as an unspoken attraction. Then, Garrow's courtroom rival, Silvester, questions the appropriateness of Garrow's friendship with Lady Sarah. Garrow challenges him to a duel. This starts a chain of events, resulting in Lady Sarah Hill leaving her husband and Sir Arthur Hill accusing Garrow of Crmininal Coversation (legal jargon for adultery).
    The series is created by Tony Merchant, a British playwright and television dramatist: "I always wanted Garrow's Law to be a show that educated and entertained, using Garrow as someone whose work at the Old Bailey could tell us something new or too easily forgotten about our past and the rights he fought to gain."moreless

    BBC (ended 2003)
    What does it take to drive apparently ordinary human beings to murder? In a BBC season of groundbreaking original movies,Murder in Mind takes viewers on a journey into the psyches of a disparate collection of killers. Exploring the psychology behind the darkest and yet most compelling crime of murder, each of the seven movies explores the ultimate crime through the eyes of the murderer and asks, not whodunit? but whydunit? Cold, calculating and in search of the perfect crime, each killer selects a different method of murder. From euthanasia, contract killing, vigilantes, accidental murder, to the bewildering act of sleepwalking, there is no set formula to the chilling thrillers, only one common theme: death in "suspicious" circumstances. "Murder should be about murderers," insists series creator Anthony Horowitz. "So our first rule was that the killer should take up most screen time. The murderer is the star, not just the plot mechanism." Some murderers appear to escape without retribution, some don't. All however, are driven to kill, they demonstrate a kaleidoscope of human emotions: anger, hatred, bitterness, remorse, guilt, horror; a roller coaster of emotions are on display as each self-contained movie hurtles towards its inevitable conclusion. Each of the seven movies boasts a nail-biting script with breathtaking twists and turns, plus some of the cream of British acting talent.moreless
