Reviews

For many, an appearance in the magistrates court is their first encounter with the Law. Bemused, perhaps frightened and often arrogant, their offence may range from a simple motoring case to murder. But whatever the degree of involvement, the experience is one that will remain indelibly etched on the memory. In each of its four series Six Days of Justice examined six fictitious cases, exact in detail, with procedural advice supplied by magistrates; although similar in style and content to Crown Court, its evening scheduling allowed the series to tackle cases with a greater degree of authenticity than its daytime counterpart. This first series features strong performances from George Sewell, Earl Cameron and Bernard Hepton, among others, and was scripted by some of the era s most highly acclaimed scriptwriters, including Trevor Preston and P.J. Hammond.

Format: DVD
1972 was obviously a good year for courtroom drama on ITV. Later in the year Granada would launch Crown Court, a daytime series that would run for twelve years. Six Days Of Justice, made by Thames, is similar in some ways, but the most obvious difference is that Six Days is set in a Magistrate's Court - therefore there's no jury.

As with all series of this vintage, each story features first rate casts. Bernard Hepton and Rachel Gurney (Upstairs Downstairs) are amongst the magistrates, and the likes of George Sewell, Clifford Rose, Molly Sugden, John Nettleton, Alethea Charlton and Brian Croucher are amongst the other acting talent on view.

The cases are fairly low key, but the quality of the acting and scripting makes for compelling viewing at times. Highlights of the first series include "Who Cares?" concerning the fate of fifteen-year-old Karen who has run away from home several times and is facing being taken into care.

"Open House" is another strong episode, written by P.J. Hammond (Sapphire & Steel) in which five commune dwellers who refuse to pay their taxes are brought before magistrate Rachel Gurney.

As a studio-bound and static production this won't appeal to everyone. But if you like well acted television drama of this era, then this is well worth a look.

A superb collection, just like the succeeding series which I
obtained first......... I'm interested by the readiness of the Bench
to convict in the vast majority of cases and there's only one acquittal
here, but I won't say which trial it refers to!

Am I imagining it or did the theme music change slightly for the second
series? In Series 1 it sounds rather less triumphant...........

Both the acting and the trials are engrossing and never less than believable.
Would I recommend this? Absolutely........

I rather think there were two more series - will they be released soon?

Excellent series that I never knew about until recently. I am unashamedly nostalgic when it comes to the old traditions of the law. The series is so life like, even by today's sittings in the Mags that a lot of research and briiliant script writing went into this.

I'd never heard of this series until Network released it, but it was well worth bringing to light. Glad to see that Series 2 is scheduled for a few months' time.
