Crime and Punishment dvd

Crime and Punishment dvd

Ref: 1856 How far should punishment go?

From the torture of suspected terrorists to the death penalty, punishment is one of the most emotive and contentious issues of modern times. Controversy continues over the 'rendition' of terror suspects to countries that practice torture: has torture become an acceptable form of punishment in the quest for national security?

This series questions whether punishment is now directed more towards the body or the soul and examines whether tabloid portrayal of specific murderers as monsters influences our attitude to punishment and vengeance.

Includes sexual references and nudity.
