Trevor McDonald has politely probed American prisons in previous series. But he’s back home again for this two-parter about Scotland Yard, home of London’s Metropolitan Police force.
In this first episode McDonald visits the Met’s colloquially named “black museum”, featuring exhibits from some of the capital’s most notorious crimes.
Though ITV couldn’t supply us with a preview, anyone with an interest in real-life crime will doubtless be absorbed by some of the Met’s most high-profile investigations, including the so-called Acid Bath Murderer John Haigh, killer of six people in the 1940s.
As Scotland Yard prepares to move to a new home, the veteran presenter is granted access behind the doors of the Metropolitan Police headquarters for the first of two programmes. The detectives' work is documented in a room inside the building called the Crime Museum, created in 1875 to house exhibits from the most important cases. Trevor gains access to this room, finding out about early forensic techniques, surveillance methods used when police were trying to identify the suffragettes, and the horrific crimes of serial killers Dennis Nilsen and the `Acid Bath Murderer'.
