Life And Death Row
Confirmed for BBC Three on 17 March at 9.00pm to 10.00pm
Monday 17 March
With unprecedented access inside prison walls, this powerful series discovers what it’s like to live with the threat of the death chamber, as well as hearing from victims and their families, and the family of those on death row - some praying for execution, some hoping for a reprieve.
Each episode focuses on a key aspect of the system – execution, trial and appeal. The first episode centres on two of the youngest men on death row in Texas, for whom execution day has arrived. Victim Nikki Daniels reflects on her kidnapping ordeal by murderer Richard Cobb and battles with her conflicting desires to forgive him, while the mother of death row inmate Anthony Haynes fights to use the final 72 hours to halt her son’s execution for the murder of a police officer.
Life And Death Row is a BBC in-house production. The Executive Producers are Colin Barr and Clare Sillery. Episode one, Execution, is directed by Ben Anthony.
