For many, an appearance in the magistrates' court is the first encounter with the Law. Bemused, perhaps frightened and often arrogant, their offence may range from a simple motoring case to murder. But whatever the degree of involvement, the experience is one that will remain indelibly etched on the memory. In each of its four series 'Six Days of Justice' examined six fictitious cases, exact in detail, with procedural advice supplied by magistrates; although similar in style and content to 'Crown Court', it's evening scheduling allowed the series to tackle cases with greater authenticity than its daytime counterpart. This second series stars Diana Quick, George Waring, Jill Gascoine, John Abineri, Jean Boht and Brian Pettifer, and features scripts by Trevor Preston, Robert Holles, and noted author and journalist Jeremy Seabrook; the series also presents the first televised screenplay by future Oscar nominee Shane Connaughton.
