BBC Factual Sets True-Crime Two-Parter


BBC Factual has unveiled a new 2×60-minute series for BBC Two and iPlayer, entitled Cold Case Investigators: Solving Britain’s Sex Crimes.

The access-based series delves into the workings of identifying suspects in previously unsolved offenses, following the detectives who pursue their trails and the emotional stories of the victims at the heart of the crimes. The title will focus on three cold cases.

Cold Case Investigators: Solving Britain’s Sex Crimes is produced by Brinkworth Productions.

Tom Coveney, head of commissioning for science at BBC, said: “I hope our viewers are inspired and captivated by the work of the cold case investigators in this series. The detectives’ skill and dedication and the meticulous work of the forensic scientists are extraordinary. But ultimately, these investigations are about delivering justice for victims, and we’re incredibly grateful to those who’ve chosen to share their stories with our audience.”
