David Baker asks what happens to the families of people shot by the police.

David Baker asks what happens to the families of people shot by the police.

Over the years, he has spent time with many such families - bereaved, grieving, often angry - in the UK and overseas. In this powerful talk David reflects on his time with three families in the United States, and asks whether their experience - not just the loss of a relative but what happened afterwards - was exceptional, or sadly not.

Producer: Peter Snowdon.
