STEPHEN: THE MURDER THAT CHANGED A NATION

James Rogan directs BBC One’s new three-part documentary which examines the 1993 death of Stephen Lawrence.

Stephen Lawrence, a promising athlete and a conscientious student, was 18 when he was stabbed to death 25 years ago at a south-London bus stop in an unprovoked attack by a gang of white youths.

His murder would convulse the nation, forcing it to look at attitudes towards race and crime, and the repercussions echo to this day – not just because the killing is still being investigated.

Exec produced by James Rogan, James Gay-Rees and Asif Kapadia.

Screened on BBC One on 17th, 18th and 19th April at 9pm.
