Crown Court: Volume 6
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 that cover a wide spectrum of what would come before a courtroom - including arson, espionage, libel and poisoning. John Le Mesurier, Maureen Lipman and Liz Smith are among several high-profile players appearing in this selection of episodes from 1973 to 1974. This set also contains the 1973 Christmas Special (Murder Most Foul) and a story - The Traffic Warden’s Daughter - which doesn’t seem to have been originally transmitted on ITV as it was replaced with The Getaway.
