ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Back to Butetown and the Cardiff Five, 30 years on.
'Shreds: Murder in the dock’ reveals the untold 30-year story of one of the most notorious miscarriages of justice in British legal history.
It is mainly told through the voices of the surviving members of the ‘Cardiff Five’ – the men originally charged and some of whom were later convicted of the murder of 20-year-old Lynette White in Cardiff’s docklands on St Valentine’s Day 1988.
We explore the original two trials – at the time the longest in British criminal history – right through to the fascinating conclusion of the mystery surrounding the brutal murder of Lynette White which culminated in the UK’s biggest-ever police corruption trial.
The back drop is the enduring fall-out on the innocent lives of those involved and the devastating impact on a community once known around the world for its diversity and tolerance, the legendary Tiger Bay.
