Have I Got Noose for You

Sunday 22 June

Concluding episode of Tony Robinson’s fascinating and sometimes bizarre journey to discover the origins of our laws and what we do to people when they break them. The 18th century was a golden age for business, when property was king but the fear of crime meant that 200 offences, including pick-pocketing, were punishable by death. Tony relives the theatre of a public execution, but also finds a London cupboard containing the preserved body of a man who inspired us to stop stringing people up and start locking them up instead.
