Emporium Productions are currently producing the second series of the programme Donal McIntyre’s Murder Files for CBS Reality. The first series became the highest rated programme on the channel.

The programme show the extraordinary work of detectives and investigative teams in the police force. In this upcoming series, Donal will once again examine a broad range of murders by interviewing first-hand the men and women who investigated the cases and brought the perpetrators to justice.

Emporium Productions would be delighted to have you as a retired senior officer onboard in this series, since you would be in a unique position to give our viewers an extraordinary insight to a complex police investigation and give an example the solid work of our police forces.

The format for each episode is simple – Donal interviews a lead detective about their case one-on-one in a studio (no audience) and this is intercut with our drama reconstruction, archive from the media and any evidential material the detective/the police can provide us with. If you have not watched the series before, the production team will send an example episode from series 1 so you can familiarise yourselves with the show.

If the team was to proceed and film an interview, the process would be handled sensitively and would contact the victim’s family out of a duty of care to inform them of the production. They would follow your lead as to what was appropriate.

Should you be interested in participating, there are plans to film interviews in central London in the week commencing 3rd December or the week commencing 21st of January, and it would only need half a day of your time (as well as a short phone call in advance of the interview – probably about an hour). Travel/expenses to and from the studio would be arranged.
