Hi Dave

Many thanks for taking the time to email us with regards to the programme.. We at Channel 4 are glad that you enjoyed the programme. We have also forwarded your appreciation to the production company that made it. On Thursday 18 December, 9pm. In an exclusive investigation , Dispatches puts judges in the dock and asks why no judge has ever been sacked for incompetence. In fact, there are no records kept of how often judges are getting it wrong, and with what consequences. Going back through the court transcripts of over 5,000 successful appeals and gathering the opinions of leading QCs, Dispatches reveals for the first time the alarming scale of judicial mistakes that can have devastating effects on those up before the court. This film was a special investigation by Mark Easton, Home Affairs Editor at Channel 4 News. If you've been affected by crime, or if you would like to know more about your human rights and the Criminal Justice System read on.

Kind regards
Gerald Splint
