The Great British Trials series present a fascinating glimpse into some of the most notorious crimes and trials of the last century. Through original trial transcripts, eyewitness accounts, and contemporary newspaper reports, we witness the actual events that made each trial a cause célèbre of its day.

Mild-mannered Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen committed one of the most famous English murders of the twentieth century—in early 1910 he dismembered his wife’s body and buried the remains. His subsequent trial at the Old Bailey was expected to be a mere formality, but Dr. Crippen pleaded “not guilty,” and so begins this strangely moving tale of passion and despair.
