Crown Court was courtroom drama which ran between 1972 to 1984 and shown in the afternoons on ITV where it was produced by Granada Television. A court case in the Crown Court of the fictional town of Fulchester would typically be played out over three weekdays in half-hour episodes. Although those involved in the case were actors, the jury was made up of members of the general public from the local Granada Television area and it was this jury alone which decided the verdict.
Synopsis: Alleged con-man Robert E Scard is a total charmer. So charming that he even persuaded a bank manager to invest in his schemes. But now he's in the dock charged with fraud. The problem is Mr Scard is he has a great of difficulty in telling the difference between truth and lies.
*The programme's legal adviser wrote this very funny script from first-hand knowledge. The evidence against Scard is based on actual court cases.
