This week: The Cost of Innocence
You are innocent until proved guilty - the jury reaches a verdict, and if they acquit, you leave the court without a stain on your character. But sometimes you leave with a hole in your pocket. The innocent person is often ordered by the judge to pay his own legal costs - which can be very expensive. And there can be no appeal against the judge's decision about costs. Is this justice? Esther Rantzen talks to three people about crimes they did not commit - but for which they must now pay. In the studio, with Desmond Wilcox, lawyers and laymen look at the issues raised.

The wedding of Arthur and Jenny is a typical North of England family affair, but afterwards one disaster follows another. On their wedding night the bed (rigged by Arthur's boss) collapses, and next day so does their honeymoon in Majorca when they discover the travel agent has absconded with everybody's money.
