A second showing of this powerful film heralds next week's completion of the story in The Journey.
A recent study in the United States found that a black man, convicted of killing a white, is over four times as likely to receive the death penalty as a white who has killed a black.
There is one crime on the record of Edward Earl Johnson, a 26-year-old Mississippi black man convicted of killing a white town marshal - murder.
He was convicted on the sole evidence of signing a confession he had not written. Johnson has always denied the killing and has been appealing against his death sentence for eight years.
This film is about the death penalty as administered in the state of Mississippi, the gas chamber, and the effect it has on the Death Row staff and inmates as time runs out for one young man... (R) (Ceefax Subtitles)
