Christopher Lee, Marcel Berlins, Tom Bingham
The Trial of Raleigh
Hay Festival 2004
The historian considers the story and repercussions of the seventeenth century trial of the former royal favourite which radically overturned the natural 'presumption of guilt' and began the evolution of the modern justice system. He is joined by Lord Bingham, the senior Law Lord, and The Guardian's legal correspondent Marcel Berlins.
