OUR CRIME

Every two minutes in the UK a teenager will commit a criminal offence. Increasingly, these misdemeanours are captured not just by millions of CCTV cameras nationwide, but in the self-shot footage of bystanders, victims or even the offenders themselves. This four-part documentary series combines candid personal testimony with the CCTV, mobile phone footage and social media that captured these crimes, to uncover the powerful stories that lie behind these shocking images.

Exploring robbery, the 2011 summer riots, car crime and gang attacks, Our Crime’ is a bold and innovative stock-take of the criminal behaviour of generation Y. Using vivid accounts from both victims and perpetrators, this series uncovers the reality of criminal events which we so commonly only witness from the outside.

It makes chilling viewing

The Sunday Times

Gives us an insight on youth crime that simply wasn’t possible before video phones, social networking, and internet messaging... a deftly-made documentary that suggests lines of thought rather than making them explicit
