Question of Evidence, A

Synopsis
Looks at the history of crime from the 19th century to the present from two different points of view. Geoff Pearson begins the programme by tracing hooliganism from the 1950s back to the 1890s. Steven Davies takes up this analysis by focussing on voluntary organisations and their role in the moral improvement campaigns of the 19th century and early 20th century.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
