Robert, Elizabeth & Sheldon: Living with racism in the justice system
During August, three people contacted us to talk about the inherent racism inside the British justice system. They should know - they work in it. Three people who have gone into our justice system to do the right thing, to protect the vulnerable, to do what the system is supposed to do - justice. And they have been deeply scarred by the racism, hostility and indifference they have suffered. Robert, Elizabeth and Sheldon (not their real names) have had their words voiced by actors for this shocking episode which illustrated just how far the Met Police and others have to go in tackling racism. These are verbatim first hand accounts of extraordinary people experiencing an extraordinary level of pain, just trying to do their jobs in some of the most important institutions in modern Britain. Portrayed by three wonderful actors: Christopher Colquhoun, Adjoa Andoh and Okezie MorrowSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Robert & Paul: Why attacks on Jewish people are attacks on us all
With anti-Semitism on the rise across the world, and a British MC spreading vile conspiracy theories on social media, we speak to two men - Robert Guterman and Paul Samuels - whose lives have been shaped by fighting against this poisonous hatred. Robert's father fled Germany to escape the Nazis, and in the 70s they marched together to fight the emergence of the far-right. Paul is the co-founder of "Love Music, Hate Racism", and was told by his father never to trust human nature.

We begin our project by spending time with two inspirational social justice activists, Marcia Rigg and Deborah Coles. Marcia Rigg has fought for 12 years for justice for her brother Sean who died after the police in Brixton used excessive force restraining him. The obstacles thrown in front of Marcia and her family in their quest for the truth about Sean’s death are astonishing. The strength of her determination to fight for justice will fill you with admiration and awe. Deb is the Director of an NGO called INQUEST which is a truly remarkable award-winning organisation that has stood up for victims of misuse of institutional and state power in the UK while standing alongside and supporting the families left behind and torn apart.
