CCTV Cities

CRIME & INVESTIGATION – Tuesdays from 5 May, 7.30pm

More and more British cities are using sophisticated CCTV systems to fight crime and keep the peace. This new action documentary series has been allowed unique access to CCTV control rooms to see how the operators and cops combine to catch criminals and videotape hooligans and drunks around the clock. This first episode goes behind the scenes in Leeds to see how the West Yorkshire police and local council cope with a city that is on the up – Leeds has an affluent shopping district, more bars and clubs than ever before and a growing student population, ensuring the life of a CCTV operator is never dull.
