The Unspeakable Crime: Rape
Documentary exploring rape, from forensic medical to police investigation, court and beyond. Cameras follow the team at St Mary's, the UK's leading sexual assault referral centre.
This film explores rape in a way that has never been seen on British television before: from forensic medical to police investigation, court and beyond.
Juliet was attacked by a stranger on New Year's Eve, while Kellie had known and trusted her attacker for over a decade. In 2012 St Mary's, the UK's leading sexual assault referral centre, allowed exclusive access, opening its doors to cameras as they supported Juliet and Kellie as well as over 1,000 other victims of rape seeking justice or attempting to move forward with their lives.
Through the experiences of the victims, the specialists at St Mary's, Greater Manchester Police's Serious Sexual Offences Unit and the Crown Prosecution Service, this film offers a unique and revealing perspective on rape in Britain today.
The statistics used in this documentary were based on research published in:
- “Crime Survey for England & Wales 2013” by Ministry of Justice, Home Office & the Office for National Statistics
“Understanding the Progression of Serious Cases through the Criminal Justice System 2012” by Ministry of Justice
