Rape is one of the world's most serious and fast-growing crimes. A recent London survey found that one in six women had been raped at least once. In
America it's one in four: that's one rape every 17 minutes.
Tonight's Q.E.D. presents film of an experiment carried out at an American psychiatric hospital near
Seattle. Four women victims were brought face to face with four convicted rapists. Psychiatrists at the Western State Hospital believe that rape is learned behaviour, which can be changed.
They saw this face-to-face confrontation as one possible way of doing this.
Q.E.D. took the film to
Grendon Psychiatric Prison in Buckinghamshire to find out whether such an experiment could be of any value here ... Understanding Rape produced by FACE TO FACE PRODUCTIONS Produced for BBCtv by VIVIENNE KING
