Monday 5 September
BBC ONELIVE NEW INTERACTIVE
For the first time ever Crimewatch will be shown weekly, starting with a series of episodes airing live on BBC One across September. In a further first for the enduring format, Crimewatch will take viewers to the heart of key appeals across the UK, as each episode broadcasts live from a mobile incident studio based near the scene of a key crime featured that week.
The series will continue to feature the show’s well-known mix of appeals, dramatic reconstructions, CCTV footage and ‘wanted faces’ that have proven so vital to the Police Forces who turn to Crimewatch to catch the perpetrators of high-profile unsolved crimes.
Viewers will be able to respond to appeals immediately using the usual Crimewatch phoneline as well as via text and email. In another new addition to the show, audiences will be kept up to date with developments on the cases immediately after and in the week between each episode via live updates on a brand new digital platform.
