The Ties That Bind

About this programme

5/6. The parents of a teenage murder victim ask Kavanagh to pursue a private prosecution on their behalf and he promptly agrees, despite the fact they are unemployed and unable to pay a fee. The accused is related to a powerful local crook, and finding witnesses prepared to testify proves no easy task. John Thaw stars, with Lisa Harrow and Nicholas Jones.
