A Question of Justice: How Britain gets away with Torture.

At Hanslope Park, an hour’s drive North of London, lie 15 miles of floor to ceiling shelf space of secret files. These files contain the crimes and secrets of British imperial rule, one of the bloodiest of the 20th century. When former imperial possessions moved towards independence, British officials received instructions from London that all compromising and embarrassing files relating to British rule should be destroyed or returned to London. The aim was to create a historical legacy of a benign British Empire.

A Question of Justice is a documentary that explores the culture of secrecy that lies at the heart of the British state. It shows how to this day Britain has managed to retain the aura of a liberal Western democracy while continually breaking the very rules and treaties that such societies claim to support. From the brutality of the end of empire conflicts to present day torture and secret wars Britain’s history remains distorted and incomplete. It is a history that is not so much reported as it is carefully managed.
