Fred discovers the truth behind one of the most controversial miscarriages of justice in 20th Century Britain. Derek Bentley was hanged for the murder of PC Sidney Miles, even though he didn't pull the trigger of the gun that shot him. It is remembered as one of the most staining cases in the history of our criminal justice system and was arguably the biggest nail in the coffin for capital punishment. It was actually 16-year-old Christopher Craig who fired the weapon. Fred talks to Derek's niece Maria Bentley-Dingwall, who tells him of his family's fight for justice and the impact it had on them. Fred also meets linguistics expert John Olson, who shows Fred how the statements Bentley gave to the police were inaccurate and should never have been used in the original trial that led to his execution.
