HEROES: Sir Ludovic Kennedy (1919-Oct 2009)
Writer and broadcaster Ludovic Kennedy dedicated his illustrious investigative career to exposing miscarriages of justice with notable success. As a result of a long campaign (Kennedy contended that Timothy Evans was innocent of the child murder at 10 Rillington Place) Evans was posthumously pardoned. The scandal helped in the abolition of the death penalty in the UK. Other cases he studied reversed the ‘guilty’ verdict of Derek Bentley and the Birmingham Six.
