Series 1, Episode 2 • The Musketeers
In part two of The Musketeers, Mark Williams-Thomas digs deeper into the lives of the four men, convicted of preparing to commit an act of terror. The last episode set out the prosecution's case, and highlighted the defence team's concerns. Not only do we hear more from the defence lawyers Stephen Kamlish QC and Gareth Pierce, but in an interview with Khobaib Hussain's sister, we find out why the men were of interest to MI5 in the first place. Looking more forensically at the evidence provided by the prosecution, namely the JD sports bag and Vincent's pocket notebook, we begin to question the integrity of the accusations, and learn how officer anonymity may have hindered justice being sought. Also hear from Chris Mullin, the man who led the campaign that resulted in the release of the Birmingham Six, as he explains just how easy it is for people to be convicted of crimes they did not commit.
