  Ruth Ellis Appeal Tuesday 16 September 2003  
An Actress plays Ruth Ellis in BBC Rough Justice
In 1955, Ruth Ellis was the last woman hanged in Britain after she was found guilty of shooting her lover.

Tomorrow, nearly fifty years later, the Court of Appeal is set to re-examine Ruth's case and we'll be hearing from her sister Muriel ? about the sexual abuse the sisters suffered in childhood and her fight to reduce the murder conviction to manslaughter.
Solicitor Bernard De Maid joins Jenni to discuss the grounds of the appeal.
