Synopsis

The killing of Stephen Lawrence by a group of white teenage boys led to one of the most complex and controversial murder investigations in 20th Century Britain. None of the suspects were convicted until 2012, following a long campaign for justice by Doreen and Neville Lawrence. This three-part series examines events leading up to the murder, the police investigation and a landmark inquiry that exposed institutional racism within the police force.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
