“Crimewatch”

Crimewatch UK has been going forever and is basically a way for the police to enlist the general (crimewatch viewing) public to help them to solve crimes. These are often long running cases that the police have no leads for and putting them on television is a last ditch attempt to solve them...

Has the potential of keeping you awake in fear

A programme that comes on once a month and scares the living daylights out of me, but somewhere there is the nagging thought that I've missed out, hence me watching behind the safety of a pillow! I can't admit to having been an avid watcher from the offset - way back in 1984 I would have been the...

Could be accused of not covering enough crimes

I have always been fascinated by Crimewatch, and I suspect the same can be said of its other six million regular viewers. Since June 1984 the BBC has brought us a monthly dose of 'reality television' at its most unattractive, usually transmitted midweek at 9.30pm in order to catch the optimum...

“catch that criminal”

published 29/06/2008

catches criminals

is a shame we need this type of program

Crime watch is a great program but in saying that i also think it is very unfortunate that we live in a society where we need this program. Crimewatch is on bbc1 once a month. This show deals with unsolved crimes from the past and present, looking into all the facts of cases and asking for...

Scary

Nothing
