Crown Court: Volume 5
A television institution that lasted for over a decade, Crown Court was a much-loved courtroom drama which, although the cases were fictional, used ‘real’ jurors chosen from members of the public. Multiple endings were prepared for each story, dependent on whether the accused was found guilty or acquitted of the charges, giving each story a strength and energy which raised it far above that of normal courtroom dramas.
This volume contains a further twelve stories (in production order) and features compelling cases which cover a wide spectrum of what would come before a courtroom - from infanticide to obscenity, manslaughter to underage sex.
