Panorama tx card Mon 17 August

Here's the TX card for Monday's Panorama. If you can't read the writing, it says: "Has the Post Office been sending innocent postmasters to jail?"

It goes out at 7.30pm on BBC 1 (10.35pm in NI).

Joe Cooper is responsible for taking the shot you see above plus the whole of this and many other Panoramas. He is an immensely talented cameraman, who also shot a lot of the two One Show pieces we made on the subject of the Post Office before Christmas.

I'll be on the One Show sofa on Monday at 7pm discussing the Panorama piece with Matt and Alex. I do hope you can watch both programmes.

Panorama - Trouble at the Post Office - 17 Aug 2015

Trouble at the Post Office, 7.30pm Mon 17 August, BBC1
Sorry this blog has been so quiet of late. I've spent a few weeks working on the above programme as well as putting together the third series of Caught on Camera for Channel 5. It's been a bit hectic, to say the least.

This is what the Radio Times listing says:

"Dozens of sub-postmasters have been prosecuted after their computers showed that money had gone missing, but could there be other explanations for the cash shortfalls? John Sweeney meets a whistleblower who says there were problems with the IT system, and also investigates claims that the Post Office charged some with theft even when the evidence didn't stack up."

As you can see, I am not presenting this Panorama, but the story could not be in better hands.

I will update you with more information as we get closer to the transmission date.
