The second episode follows the work of a specialist rape unit in Portsmouth, the first dedicated unit to be established outside London; in other parts of the country rape is bundled in with other crimes and conviction rates can be as low as five per cent. Rape is a uniquely difficult crime to solve. It often takes place behind closed doors with no corroborating evidence, and no outside witnesses. All too often it boils down to one person's word against another's.
