Trivia

On April 26th 1999, presenter Jill Dando was shot dead outside her home in Fulham, London. The show broadcast a reconstruction of her murder the following month; however, it was not until May 2000 that a local man, Barry George, was arrested and charged with her murder. He received a life sentence in July 2001, but after a retrial was acquitted in August 2008. Dando's murder thus remains unsolved. See more »

Helping to solve real life crime
7 February 2006 | by chris_gaskin123See all my reviews

I've been watching Crimewatch UK for many years and is the BBC's crime solving programme.

It deals with the more serious offences that have been in the news including murders, rapes, armed robberies and kidnappings. Reconstructions using actors help to solve these crimes and then follows an appeal with the crime victims themselves and coppers dealing with the case.

We also get to see CCTV footage of crimes such as crooks robbing banks at gun point and also photo's of criminals who are wanted by police.

Nick Ross has presented this from the start and other presenters over the years include Sue Cook, the late Jill Dando and Ross's current co-presenter, Fiona Bruce.

This is usually shown once a month on BBC1 on a Tuesday or Wednesday evening between 9 and 10 pm.

Long may Crimewatch UK continue.
