In 2015, filmmakers gave 75 cameras to people from all over the world to film where regular film crews can't go: on the inflatable dinghies crossing from Turkey to Greece; in the back of lorries entering Eurostar; or on open trucks driven by people smugglers across the Sahara. The result is this award-winning documentary: a terrifyingly intimate and uniquely epic portrait of what has become the biggest story of the decade: the migrant crisis. This first episode begins as hundreds of thousands of refugees from Syria arrive in the Turkish port of Izmir.
Criminologist Professor David Wilson conducts a series of revealing interviews with convicted murderer Bert Spencer: the man never charged with, yet was widely suspected of the murder of paperboy Carl Bridgewater in 1978, a crime he's always denied. With a team of researchers from Birmingham City University, Professor Wilson re-examines the evidence surrounding both the murder Spencer was convicted for and the one he has never been charged with, challenging Spencer's account in direct exchanges. He gathers testimony from some of those closest to Spencer in 1978, the day Carl died.
