The Guilty Innocent with Christopher Eccleston

In his first ever presenting role Christopher Eccleston will examine two highly controversial cases, both of which captured the public imagination and sparked major campaigns for social justice and continue to fascinate today.

Marking the 50-year anniversary of the arrest of minicab driver George Davis for the armed payroll robbery of the London Electricity Board in Ilford, Essex, Eccleston talks to those who campaigned tirelessly for Davis' release and for his conviction to be overturned.

In a TV exclusive Davis will break his 50-year silence with his first ever long form TV interview.

The series also re-examines the highly controversial case of James Hanratty, one of the last men to be hanged in Britain, for the murder of Michael Gregsten and attempted murder of Valerie Storie, in August 1961.

Eccleston retraces the extraordinary twists-and-turns of this notorious case, and the evidence which put Hanratty's neck in the hangman's noose on 4 April, 1962, sparking a concerted campaign to end capital punishment in the UK, once and for all.

In this cooking competition it's all about skill, speed and ingenuity as four aspiring chefs compete before a panel of three expert judges.
