Conviction: Murder At The Station
A team of experts investigate whether evidence exists that could challenge the conviction of a man in prison for a murder he denies.
Every year, over 500 people in the UK are convicted of murder. A guilty verdict can only be challenged if new evidence comes to light – and less than 1% of cases are ever overturned.
Inside Justice is a specialist charity led by Louise Shorter, supported by a panel of criminal lawyers, ex-police officers and forensics experts who offer assistance to prisoners who are protesting their innocence. In this series we meet Louise as she investigates a case, looking for evidence that could present grounds to bring an appeal - and ultimately overturn the conviction of a Southampton man in prison for the murder of his secret lover.
“With gentle but diligent questioning, investigator Lousie Shorter took Kearney’s calls from prison, retraced his alleged movements on the night and walked down some pretty mean housing estates. I am enthralled.”
Andrew Billen, The Times
“Sometimes with investigative shows it can feel as if a narrative structure has been imposed in hindsight, that information is being withheld from the viewer for the sake of suspense. Not in this case. It really did seem as if we were along for the ride.”
Tim Dowling, The Guardian
"It promises to be a gripping two-parter with an unguessable outcome.”
