Seeking Justice: Prosecutor

BBC4 presents Prosecutor, watch this programme here. Some scenes are very distressing so if you are below 16 you must get parental consent! 
This is a great lesson about the horrific effects of War and how our world is trying to seek Justice under the rule of law. It is an useful resource for those seating for GCSE RE/A level, Law, Philosophy, Sociology, Citizenship, Geography and History. 
Here is the summary of the programme
Critics say Luis Moreno-Ocampo's justice threatens peace, while champions of justice criticise his weaknesses. The world's first permanent International Criminal Court is making headlines - issuing an arrest warrant for a sitting head of state for war crimes, Sudanese President Al-Bashir in July 2008 and now seeking the arrest of Colonel Gaddafi, his son Saif and his brother-in-law, the intelligence chief Abdullah Sanussi. Cameras follow the prosecutor in New York as he defends the Al-Bashir warrant at the UN Security Council; in The Hague, as he opens the Court's first trial of alleged Congolese war criminal Thomas Lubanga; and in the Congo as he meets citizens affected by the trial. The prosecutor must keep one step ahead of them all.
