Do we view CCTV evidence as fact?
11 September 2019 | by richardmcurrie-78912See all my reviews

The premise of us taking CCTV as fact is very interesting. It is used in court cases up and down the country convicting many in the process, but it can be flawed. The most simple flaw is incorrect date and time stamping. And there are technologies out there that can manipulate. Apps on mobile phones are getting so good now that fakes and deep fakes are becoming commonplace. And so now we have "The Capture", giving us a thought provoking angle on our use of CCTV..

Well, for a start I'm loving the London setting. I'm loving the twists. The cabbie twist was particularly good. But there are holes and these are getting bigger by each episode (and I've only watched 1 & 2!) I really hope this isn't another bodyguard with loose endings and conveniently ignoring the facts of earlier episodes. But I'll go along for the ride. The acting is great especially from the female leads. I'm really hoping everything ties up. But at the end of the day it is a TV show. It's entertainment and more's the point it's British, so for all of that, I'm sure it will be brilliant.
