Stephen: The Mur­der that Changed a Na­tion

(BBC1, 9pm-10pm)

Evening Express (City Final) - - TV Highlights -

In April 1993, Stephen Lawrence was mur­dered in an un­pro­voked at­tack by a group of white youths. Now as the 25th an­niver­sary ap­proaches, this doc­u­men­tary, which is shown across con­sec­u­tive evenings, sets out to tell the story not just of the crime, but the sub­se­quent in­ves­ti­ga­tion which would turn into one of the long­est, most com­plex and ar­guably mis­han­dled in the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Po­lice’s his­tory, al­low­ing the sus­pected killers to es­cape jus­tice for nearly 20 years. The film­mak­ers also ex­plore how the de­ter­mi­na­tion of Doreen and Neville Lawrence kept the case in the pub­lic eye.
