The Accused

This is an 'anatomy' of a jury trial, which gives us a behind-the-scenes perspective of defence counsel and defendant, and the prosecution, in their preparations for the case. We follow one full trial all the way (for the first time in Australia filming the progress within the courtroom from start to finish). Viewing the trial through as many eyes as possible, this documentary presents insights into the day to day processes involved, the roles of the key players, the psychology of the courtroom and the strategies adopted by various players.
