This gripping three-part series follows the detectives of Manchester’s Public Protection Division, a team created to investigate sexual offences. Here, you’ll see the investigators grapple with the case of famed Manchester DJ Ray Teret, a friend of disgraced BBC host Jimmy Savile who is himself accused of a string of sexual offences against schoolgirls allegedly taking place in the 1960s and 1970s. In real life sequences that will appeal to fans of any crime procedurals, you’ll get a glimpse of the methodology behind the sleuthing, and be on hand as the team unearths clues to crack the case.
