"Crimewatch" (formerly Crimewatch UK) is a long-running and high-profile British television programme produced by the BBC, that reconstructs major unsolved crimes in order to gain information from the public which may assist in solving the case. The programme was originally broadcast once a month on BBC One, although in more recent years the programme has more usually been broadcast roughly once every two months. It was announced on 15 October 2008 that the BBC would move the production of shows such as Crimewatch to studios in Cardiff. The show was first broadcast on 7 June 1984, and is based on the German TV show Aktenzeichen XY … ungelöst (which translates as File Reference XY … Unsolved). It was first presented by Nick Ross and Sue Cook. When Cook left in 1995, she was replaced by Jill Dando. After Dando's murder in April 1999, Fiona Bruce took over. Kirsty Young, Sonali Shah and Martin Bayfield currently front the show; following the departures of Ross and Bruce in 2007, Rav Wilding in December 2011 and Matthew Amroliwala in March 2015.
Jeremy Vine and Tina Daheley are once again live from the location of one of the UK's biggest unsolved cases. They also have the very latest developments on last week's appeals. This edition also features a special investigation into the recent spike in knife crime, particularly involving teenagers. Alison Cope, whose son Joshua was stabbed to death in 2013, explores why so many of Britain's youngsters are arming themselves with knives. Plus there is the inside story of how detectives caught a schoolboy killer. Double murderer James Fairweather was just 15 when he stabbed and slashed father-of-five James Attfield more than 100 times in Colchester in March 2014. Three months later, Fairweather went on to murder 31-year-old student Nahid Almanea, who was found stabbed to death on her route to university. The Crimewatch Update programme has been replaced with a new live digital platform linked to the show's website, which keeps audiences up to date with developments on the cases.
