TRUE CONFESSIONS : Robert Brown, wrongly convicted in 1977

 

The first of a trilogy of films I made for the BBC about Scotland's longest serving victim of a miscarriage of justice.

 

 

 

Other investigations include :

A Death At Porton Down (BBC 2, 1999) the film exposed mistakes by government scientists experimenting with the nerve agent Sarin in 1956. It led to the death of a volunteer serviceman, subsequently covered up.

A Difficult Diagnosis (BBC Frontline Scotland, 1998) exposed the ignorance among health professionals about the effect of anticonvulsant drugs on foetal development. The film told the stories of children born with Foetal Anti-Convulsant Syndrome.
