A Woman's Burned Body on The Force

Saturday, October 31 on M4

The Force lays bare the challenges faced by the frontline officers of Hampshire Constabulary. In this episode a woman’s body, burned beyond all recognition, is discovered in a cornfield on an otherwise idyllic summer’s day. Within two days, the police know how their victim met her grisly end; but they don’t know who she or her killer is. House-to-house inquiries lead to a database search of car registrations and the chase is on… As the case unfolds it presents an extraordinary snapshot of Britain in the 21st century – the passions, and divisions hidden beneath the placid surface of middle England – and a unique insight into the fragility of modern policing.
