Event Short Description

Ex barrister Peter Blood explores the wrongful conviction of 6 people for the 1975 Birmingham bombs

Event Information

In August 1975, six men went on trial for the murders of the 21 people killed in two Birmingham pub bombings. All six denied the charges, however afterwards they were convicted and sentenced to lengthy prison terms. 15½ years later, in March 1991, the convictions were quashed by the Court of Appeal.

This single day seminar course (C3747262) will examine how this miscarriage of justice came about and what lessons can be learnt from it.
