Two top criminal barristers, Sasha Wass and Jeremy Dein, explore historical murders where the convicted went to the gallows pleading their innocence. Investigating cases which bear all the hallmarks of a miscarriage of justice, they join forces with a living member of the convicted criminal’s family and a variety of specialist experts to re-examine the crime, evidence and trial. The barristers employ modern forensic techniques to ask whether the original conviction was safe.
