Arguably one of the most memorable legal dramas in the history of British television, Crown Court was originally broadcast on ITV and was water cooler TV. The show used fictional cases but the jurors were actually members of the public. Different endings were filmed to account for the verdict of the jury and this added an intensity and twist to the normal courtroom dramas of that era.
