Sex, religion and the law always make a potent mix. London, in the 1850s, saw a sensational libel trial involving two prominent clergymen. One accused the other of multiple seduction and rape. Who is the real hypocrite and can the jury unmask him or will religious prejudice get in the way? Presented by Professor Simon Lee. Written by David Wade from contemporary records.
