BBC Studios Prepping Sarah Everard Documentary


BBC Studios is producing Sarah Everard: The Search for Justice for BBC One and iPlayer.

The hour-long documentary will delve into the murder of 33-year-old Sarah Everard by a serving police officer who abducted her as she walked home in March 2021. The title aims to bring increased focus to issues of women’s safety and abuse of power by police and others in positions of authority.

The doc is being made by the BBC Studios Documentary Unit.

Emma Loach, lead commissioning editor for documentaries at the BBC, said: “The murder of Sarah Everard sent shock waves across the country and ignited an urgent conversation about police failings and violence against women and girls. This is an important and timely film and we, like Sarah’s family, hope it will contribute to the ongoing dialogue around the issues raised.”
