The BBC is to broadcast a special edition of Crimewatch titled Riots Caught On Camera.

The 30-minute programme will be presented by Crimewatch’s Rav Wilding – himself a former policeman.


The special programme will ask viewers for their help to identify the rioters and looters caught on camera in the recent disturbances. Rav Wilding will travel to the most affected cities uncovering crucial CCTV and stills images, which the police hope will ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.

The programme airs on BBC One, Thursday 18 August at 8pm.
