Public Order, The

Synopsis
This series of three one-hour programmes uses the ‘hypotheticals’ technique which has been pioneered in the UK by Granada. A panel of police officers from constable to chief constable, and others from the judiciary and central and local government, are faced with a series of hypothetical situations closely based on real events. They are asked what they would do under these circumstances. In each programme a barrister acts as a moderator. American lawyer Benno Schmidt is the moderator in this programme. He presents the panel with some everyday public order problems including large football crowds, a march by nationalist extremists and the invasion of a seaside town by skinheads on scooters.
