Great British Trials presents a fascinating glimpse into three of the most notorious crimes and trials of the last 100 years. 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.
In March 1950 Timothy Evans, aged 25, was hanged for the murder of his wife and child. 16 years later the Queen was to grant him a full pardon. So why did Timothy Evans confess to murder? Why was John Christie not arrested until three years later? And what was the gruesome discovery behind the kitchen wall? The shocking truth of the sordid events that took place behind the doors of number 10 Rillington Place was to horrify the nation.
