the strange case of the law
1. laying down the law.

english common law, with its emphasis on the role of the jury set a standard of fairness that has influenced
legal systems across the world. many of the features that characterise today's courts were in place by as
early as the 14th century. how did england come to have such a distinctive and enduring system?

barrister harry potter traces english law back to the simple compensation culture of early anglo-saxon
kent. he explores the rise of trial by ordeal, where painful and dangerous physical tests were used to
determine guilt or innocence. he shows how this system of religious "proof" came to be replaced by jury
trial, explains why henry ii's attempt to unify law in england led to murder in canterbury cathedral and
takes a revealing look at the most famous legal document in history, magna carta.

made by the bbc and aired on bbc 4

nice, i've seen this touched on in a documentary (time team? cr) with tony robinson about
compensatory law and how much of current law has changed over the years.

good, in the mood for a decent doco.

hope it's not meh, but bbc doco's rarely are!!
