Verdict on barristers hits TV

“Justice is not only about evidence,” states journalist David Rose introducing a six-part series that claims to lift the lid on the legal system.

The first part of The Verdict, to be screened on BBC2 on Tuesday 12 November, shows how advocates play the jury system to win cases. In it Rose talks to “star performers in the theatre of the British courts”, including QCs George Carman, Anthony Scrivener and Ronald Thwaites.
