Within A Year and a Day is a continuation of the previous story The Rain It Raineth which focused on three young tearaways accused of robbing a factory and assaulting the night watchman. One of the three wasn’t actually involved but took the blame and was given two years probation. The other two got away scot free. Now the night watchman has been found dead at the factory and although it looks to be natural causes the police are keen to pursue a charge of murder.
When the post mortem reveals that the man’s death was the result of a blow to the head, the police arrest Brian and charge him with murder. The police also charge Glover and Biscuit with murder.
Meanwhile Harriet teams with her head of chambers Sir John Gallaher to present the best case possible. Finally Brian realises just how serious his predicament is and tells the truth about everything that happened.
At the time Justice was filmed there were 2,584 barristers practicing in England and 147 of them were women. The Bar was open to women from 1922 but the 100 mark was only hit in 1965.
“All I’ve got to do is prove they got the wrong man and the other two are guilty.”
