Accused: Guilty or Innocent? takes viewers inside the lives of people alleged to have committed serious crimes, offering an intimate account of what happens when someone is formally charged with a crime and sent to trial. Presented solely from the perspective of the accused, their legal team and family members, each episode follows the accused person’s journey through the planning of their legal defense, the trial and, ultimately, the verdict. As evidence mounts and the trial approaches, these emotional stories provide a first-hand look at what it is like when your freedom is on the line.

Ever wonder what it's like to pursue a fleeing suspect at breakneck speeds or exchange gunfire with a violent gang member?

Cruise Ship Killers is a true crime series that tells the stories of people who never returned home after taking a holiday on a cruise ship. Since 2011, more than 200 cruise line travellers have gone missing and are presumed dead. Many are murdered. While some of the murders have officially been solved, questions still linger and others remain covered up for wicked reasons. Featuring interviews with family, friends, investigators and experts this series shines a light on these cases and aims to uncover the truth of what really happens abroad at sea.


Continuing Mondays this July at 21.00 & 22.00 

Britain’s Darkest Taboos tells the stories of some of the most shocking and disturbing crimes within families and relationships. Every family’s worst nightmares are relived and re-told in unflinching detail by those left behind – by the families and friends, and by others whose lives have been touched - like the police officers and reporters involved in the cases. Each episode also includes expert analysis from former Detective Superintendent David Swindle (pictured left) and psychologist Emma Kenny (pictured right). Each series looks into how the ones you trust the most can commit the most disturbing of crimes.
