Real jury will judge drama suspects

A jury made up of members of the public will decide whether a character in a new drama about date rape on digital channel More4 is guilty of the crime.

The 90-minute programme, in which a date rape scenario will be followed through from the alleged crime to the outcome of the trial, will also feature real-life barristers questioning the accused.

Independent producer Century Films is making the drama, which will begin with a scripted segment chronicling two colleagues who go on an away day and end up in bed together. The woman claims she was raped but the man says the sex was consensual.
