Indelible Evidence

CHARMLESS CRIMEWATCH roadtester shuttled out on BBC2 proffering supremely detailed reconstructions and behind-the scenes gubbins with camera-shy forensics. Notable early small screen airing of PAM ST. CLEMENTS’ Cockney Harridan, here trying to gas herself in own car.

    Bloody terrifying, almost on the same level as the Mad Death and Threads for offering up depictions of carnage and horror against an ‘everyday’ backdrop. Spurious highlights included a woman burning the breakfast whilst overcome with horror at the senseless murders of her husband and son, a woman crawling from the smouldering wreckage of an unsuccessful car bomb muder attempt, dragging her shattered legs behind her, and some weirdo who boiled up his own mother and tipped her down the drain. “Charmless”? I should bloody say so, and all set to a squawking free-jazz sax theme.

    This was revived in the 1990s for a few years.
