Storyline

Despite his barrister's assertion that George Bennett faked the photographs Hawkin is found guilty of the rape and murder of Alison and is hanged - to the joy of the village. In the present Keith sacks Catherine and sends his assistant Nicola to interview George but George's sister refuses her access. Aware that Keith is out to discredit George Catherine persuades Tommy to go to Scardale with her to interview surviving locals and find out what really happened but they are met with hostility and driven away. Returning to the village alone Catherine accidentally stumbles upon a woman who holds the key to events of the 1960s including a catalogue of systematic child abuse in which she herself was a victim. Having heard the truth Catherine decides that the past should be allowed to be laid to rest and gives up the film. Written by don @ minifie-1
