I missed the first in the series on BBC, but the second episode of “The Riots: In Their Own Words: The Police” was on TV tonight.
Thankfully, I was on holiday during the 2011 riots, it was the last holiday I’ll get until August 2013 due to my department’s inability to organise a piss up in a brewery, but that’s by-the-by.
It was fascinating TV telling individual stories in the context of the worst outbreak of public order the UK has seen for many a long year. Apparently, last week’s episode was in the words of the Rioters.
If you didn’t catch this programme you can catch it again on iPlayer for the next week
