The programme which asks you the viewer to turn crimefighter. with Nick Ross and Sue Cook You will see dramatic reconstructions of recent crimes - the police provide the evidence to date, you could provide the leads they need. This month, the minicab murders near Heathrow
Airport; within six months two cab-drivers were stabbed to death apparently for the sake of a few pounds. And the arsonist in the north east who's struck at two historic churches. There's a progress report on the new leads resulting from viewers' calls about last month's cases.
Sue Cook and Nick Ross will be waiting for your call.
Police officers David Hatcher and Helen Phelps report on the latest crime news from the Incident Desk. Backing them up, investigating officers man banks of telephone lines, and local police forces round the country will be standing by to act on information received. You may think your recollection is unimportant - but it could be the clue that solves the crime.
If you can help, call the Crimewatch number, [number removed] from 9.25 till the end of the evening.
