Innocent Behind Bars
Innocent Behind Bars 8 x 60'
Cases of wrongful conviction plague the justice system, leading to many decades – and even lives – lost behind bars. In an intimate portrayal of justice, this series reveals the true experience of being wrongfully convicted and the impact that lasts well beyond the prison cell.

Each episode explores the harrowing story of a person who was convicted of a crime they didn’t commit. In their own words, hear their heartbreak and triumph as they fought to prove their innocence in a court of law. Supported by those close to the case, the crime and trial are critically examined to find the flaws and falsehoods in the original conviction that proved their innocence. In some cases it was being in the wrong place at the wrong time, prosecution because of their skin colour or they simply couldn’t afford adequate counsel. Legal experts examine how these unjust rulings were overturned, from modern DNA testing technology and the confession of the real killer.

With unrivalled access to a first-person perspective of being wrongfully convicted, the case is presented to an audience through archive images, misplaced police reports and explosive court documents to illustrate the long battle to find the truth. But even exoneration can’t heal all wounds, the impact extends further than just lost years and affects every part of their lives; sometimes beyond repair. Embark on an eye-opening journey of persistence and hope with the Innocent Behind Bars.
