Description

In Europe and Australia, the death penalty is seen as abhorrent. Yet 50 countries in the world today still apply it liberally. Who is right? And who is wrong? In this program we explore the history of capital punishment from its roots as a macabre public warning (and even entertainment) to secret judicial activity. We trace the groundswell of public abhorrence and its ensuing place in the debate about civil rights through to its eventual abolition in Britain and Australia. Warning: Contains some distressing depictions of executions and death. (¬ęThe Open University)
