Murder in the Car Park
In this third episode of the true crime drama documentary series the programme concludes by tying together the complex threads of a case that has lasted 33 years, and has cost £30 million, but has still brought no one to justice.
The three-part production, which follows the twists and turns of the most investigated unsolved murder enquiry in the history of the Metropolitan Police, probes why private investigator Daniel Morgan was killed in a pub car park in south London and why it has been so hard to secure a conviction.
What lies behind the failure of the police investigation? Will anyone come forward to reveal who wielded the axe that ended Daniel Morgan’s life? For the first time, those that were alleged to have committed the crime, the police officers who investigated the crime, and the grieving brother of the victim all give their answers.

The Golden Girls
The fabulous foursome of Miami return for another afternoon double-bill.
In the first episode ‘Brother, Can You Spare That Jacket?’ Dorothy has a stroke of luck when a lottery ticket she bought is worth $10,000. Unaware to Sophia, Dorothy, Rose and Blanche decide they need to ‘hide it somewhere safe’ opting to place the ticket in Blanche’s old jacket, which Sophia later places in a box with clothes for goodwill. The quest is then on to get that lucky ticket back…
The final offering of the day is ‘Scared Straight’. When Blanche’s brother Clayton pays a visit she tells the girls that she suspects her brother has found love with a lady. Dorothy reminds Blanche that her brother is as straight as Larry Grayson, but Blanche puts his homosexual urges down to being a phase. Sophia teaches Blanche the error of her homophobic ways… 30 years ahead of its time, and a great choice of series for a re-screening by Channel 5.
