PHONE RINGS

0:00:160:00:18

Gerry, what do you want? It's my day off.

0:00:260:00:28

Yeah, I know and I'm sorry about that, but I need your help.

0:00:280:00:31

-Why, what's happened?

-No, no, no - nothing like that, it's just...

0:00:310:00:34

Listen, I'm giving up cigarettes.

0:00:340:00:37

Gerry! Well done! That's fantastic!

0:00:370:00:40

-And I just wondered whether you'd be my fag buddy?

-Your what?

0:00:400:00:45

Fag buddy - you know, someone who helps somebody else give up smoking.

0:00:450:00:49

Oh, right, yeah, of course. No, I'd love to help.

0:00:490:00:51

Yeah, but you've got to keep encouraging me, all right?

0:00:510:00:54

Make sure I don't waver.

0:00:540:00:56

"Make cigarettes history!".

0:00:560:00:57

Absolutely. Good man. Keep it up.

0:00:570:01:00

Oh, I will, yeah. Cheers, bye.

0:01:000:01:02

Bye.

0:01:020:01:03

You idiot! You should be ashamed of yourself!

0:01:300:01:32

# It's all right, it's OK

0:01:360:01:39

# Doesn't really matter if you're old and grey

0:01:390:01:42

# It's all right, I say, it's OK

0:01:420:01:44

# Listen to what I say

0:01:440:01:47

# It's all right, doing fine

0:01:470:01:50

# Doesn't really matter if the sun don't shine

0:01:500:01:53

# It's all right, it's OK

0:01:530:01:56

# Getting to the end of the day

0:01:560:01:57

I thought I was early.

0:02:030:02:05

Strickland's away.

0:02:050:02:07

-Anywhere nice?

-He left us this,

0:02:070:02:10

with a covering note.

0:02:100:02:11

"Dear Sandra, this file arrived on my desk today. It is unusual

0:02:130:02:17

"in having only recently ceased being an active enquiry,

0:02:170:02:20

"but knowing of your specific expertise dealing with

0:02:200:02:23

"this kind of crime in the past,

0:02:230:02:25

"the commissioner is eager for UCOS to be involved not merely

0:02:250:02:29

"due to your particular skills, but because of the real danger

0:02:290:02:33

"that the perpetrator will strike again."

0:02:330:02:35

-"This kind of crime"?

-Rape?

0:02:350:02:39

Yeah, two of them in 1999.

0:02:390:02:43

Ooh, at the Pyramid Chocolate Factory in Greenford.

0:02:430:02:45

Then after a ten year gap, there was another attack 12 months ago

0:02:450:02:49

the back room of a shop in Totteridge. Helen Vestry.

0:02:490:02:52

Operation Sapphire investigated that attack and they linked DNA

0:02:520:02:56

from it to the rapes back in '99.

0:02:560:02:58

MO was exactly the same.

0:02:580:02:59

-Any suspects?

-No. Both investigations drew a blank.

0:02:590:03:02

What about the MO?

0:03:020:03:04

All three were attacked from behind and in total darkness.

0:03:040:03:07

They said he wore gloves,

0:03:070:03:09

-but none of them recall seeing anything more of the guy. Oh, and he never spoke.

-Is that it?

0:03:090:03:13

They all said that he smelled strongly of sweat. Thank you.

0:03:130:03:17

This bloke doesn't have anything going for him, does he?

0:03:170:03:20

-What about where the rapes took place? Any link?

-Only the darkness.

0:03:200:03:24

Jean Saunders was raped in the women's changing room at Pyramid

0:03:240:03:28

just after her shift ended at 6pm. All the lights went out

0:03:280:03:31

just before she was attacked, and then a week later, Eileen

0:03:310:03:34

was assaulted on the shop floor of the factory around nine.

0:03:340:03:37

Again, all the lights were turned off.

0:03:370:03:40

-Why didn't they do a mass DNA screening?

-They did.

0:03:400:03:42

All the men employed by Pyramid,

0:03:420:03:44

plus security, delivery men, contract cleaners,

0:03:440:03:47

but none of their DNA matched that of the rapist's.

0:03:470:03:49

What about last year? The most recent attack.

0:03:490:03:53

Helen Vestry was attacked as she was closing up the shop at which she worked. Again, pitch black.

0:03:530:03:58

Long time, isn't it, between attacks?

0:03:580:04:01

Well, the bloke could have been anywhere - abroad, prison, anything.

0:04:010:04:04

Possibly, but given that most rapes are not reported,

0:04:040:04:06

I think there's a good chance he has committed more in between.

0:04:060:04:09

They're all very similar, these women, aren't they?

0:04:090:04:12

Blonde, petite, in their twenties.

0:04:120:04:14

Physically very easy to subdue.

0:04:140:04:17

Not a coincidence then.

0:04:170:04:18

He observes them, singles them out.

0:04:180:04:20

For some, the biggest kick is the actual preparation

0:04:200:04:23

and build-up to the assault, not the attack itself.

0:04:230:04:25

That would explain the extreme sweating.

0:04:250:04:28

You know, he gets excited about successfully carrying out

0:04:280:04:31

a carefully planned operation.

0:04:310:04:33

-Are the victims willing to talk?

-Jean Saunders has since died

0:04:330:04:36

of cancer, but the other two have agreed to meet.

0:04:360:04:38

You and I'll talk to them - you guys go to the factory.

0:04:380:04:41

Now, Operation Sapphire haven't spoken to Eileen Harrison

0:04:410:04:45

or anybody else at Pyramid about this last attack, so probably a good idea not to mention it

0:04:450:04:50

and needless to say this is a very sensitive investigation so...

0:04:500:04:53

For God's sake, look at us - we've handled hundreds of these cases,

0:04:530:04:59

and you're telling us we've got to be sensitive!

0:04:590:05:03

Gerry's given up smoking.

0:05:030:05:05

-What! You?!

-Ahhh, that's why you're so ratty.

0:05:050:05:08

-I am not ratty!

-What's brought this on all of a sudden?

0:05:080:05:11

Well, I had to see the doctor and he said at my age

0:05:110:05:14

I should have given up by now. So you can't argue, can you, really?

0:05:140:05:17

Well, I am delighted, congratulations.

0:05:170:05:19

Helen Vestry?

0:05:310:05:33

-Sandra Pullman?

-Yes, this is my colleague, Jack Halford.

-Hello.

0:05:330:05:37

-Thanks for agreeing to see us.

-Not at all.

0:05:370:05:39

Anything if it helps catch the shit-bag. It's through the back.

0:05:390:05:42

Here. I just came in to close up...

0:05:450:05:47

I did that most nights, and next moment the lights went out,

0:05:470:05:53

he grabbed me from behind and, well, he did what he did.

0:05:530:05:58

The Operation Sapphire Team said that you didn't hear him threaten you, he didn't speak?

0:05:580:06:03

-No.

-Did you cry out?

0:06:030:06:04

I didn't have time.

0:06:040:06:06

Anyway, there was no-one in the shop and...

0:06:060:06:09

I was scared, unfortunately.

0:06:090:06:11

No, no. Of course you were scared.

0:06:110:06:13

So you never saw his face?

0:06:130:06:15

No. I would have remembered. I am good with faces.

0:06:150:06:18

It was just too dark to see him.

0:06:180:06:20

Is there anything else you can remember? Anything at all?

0:06:200:06:23

Yeah...I remember thinking "I hope he doesn't kill me".

0:06:230:06:27

The feel of his gloves and the damp...the smell...of his sweat.

0:06:290:06:37

How long is it since you had a fag?

0:06:520:06:56

-Four days?

-How's it going?

0:06:570:07:01

Yeah, good, thanks, yeah, yeah.

0:07:010:07:04

With the nicotine deprivation, I mean.

0:07:040:07:06

I'm fine, all right? Just don't keep on about it.

0:07:060:07:09

Duncan Miller. Managing director.

0:07:110:07:13

Gerry Standing. Brian Lane. Thanks for your time.

0:07:130:07:16

Oh, it's a pleasure - always willing to help the boys in blue.

0:07:160:07:19

Celine was saying you're here to investigate the, er...

0:07:190:07:21

-incidents back in '99?

-Yes.

0:07:210:07:24

We'd like to see where the attacks took place

0:07:240:07:27

and talk to any of the employees who were here at the time.

0:07:270:07:31

Sure, well, there's not that many still here,

0:07:310:07:33

but I'll show you down to the shop-floor - this way.

0:07:330:07:37

I'm afraid the women's changing room has been demolished

0:07:370:07:41

to make way for a refrigeration storage facility.

0:07:410:07:44

I must say, I'm intrigued to find out

0:07:440:07:46

why you've come back after all this time.

0:07:460:07:49

-Well, the case was never closed.

-Oh.

0:07:490:07:51

Mr Miller, you did take a DNA test with everyone else, didn't you?

0:07:510:07:54

Yeah - Duncan, please... call me Duncan.

0:07:540:07:56

Yes, yes, I was very relieved. But all the work-force were cleared.

0:07:560:08:00

The whole affair was devastating.

0:08:000:08:01

Pyramid - we're not just a company, we're one big happy family.

0:08:010:08:06

So this is where, er...

0:08:070:08:10

-Eileen Harrison.

-This is where Eileen, was er...

0:08:110:08:14

-It was a terrible affair, terrible.

-WOMAN ON SPEAKER: 'This is a call

0:08:140:08:18

'for Mr Miller. Could Duncan Miller please go to R&D?'

0:08:180:08:21

Sorry about this, I'll leave you with Tilly Shaw.

0:08:210:08:23

She's the shift supervisor, but at the time she was working on the production line - Tilly!

0:08:230:08:28

Could you come here? These gentlemen want a word.

0:08:280:08:31

Excuse me gentlemen, please. Thank you.

0:08:310:08:33

-Hello.

-Brian. Brian Lane.

0:08:330:08:36

-Gerry Standing.

-Hello.

0:08:360:08:38

-Eileen Harrison?

-Yeah?

-Detective Superintendent Pullman,

0:08:380:08:42

-this is my colleague Jack Halford.

-Right, well, you'd better come in.

0:08:420:08:46

Thank you.

0:08:460:08:47

I didn't know there were going to be two of you.

0:08:500:08:53

-Oh. I'm sorry. I...

-No, it's just, erm....

0:08:530:08:56

No, no, no, it's quite all right...

0:08:560:08:57

I understand. If there is somewhere I could wait..?

0:08:570:09:01

E, yeah, in the living room.

0:09:010:09:04

Thank you.

0:09:040:09:05

-I'm sorry about that.

-You don't have to apologise, Eileen.

0:09:090:09:12

-I can call you that?

-Yeah.

-I don't want you to feel pressurised

0:09:120:09:16

in any way, cos we're here to help catch the man who attacked you.

0:09:160:09:20

-Is it OK if we go back to the night it happened?

-Yeah.

0:09:220:09:27

You finished work at seven o'clock?

0:09:270:09:30

Well, the shift normally finished at five,

0:09:300:09:32

but we did two hours' overtime, cos we had a rush on.

0:09:320:09:36

And then you went back to the shop floor two hours later?

0:09:360:09:38

Yeah, I'd left my purse in the changing rooms.

0:09:380:09:42

I couldn't find it in my handbag, so I went back for it.

0:09:420:09:45

And, er...

0:09:450:09:47

that was when...

0:09:470:09:49

-And you went back alone?

-Yeah...

0:09:490:09:51

Well, they'd increased security.

0:09:510:09:54

Everyone was being checked in and out the factory.

0:09:540:09:57

I mean, it was more secure than ever

0:09:570:10:00

and I never thought that it could happen again.

0:10:000:10:04

I never thought that he'd...

0:10:040:10:06

-It's all right if you want to stop, Eileen.

-Nah.

-You just have to say.

0:10:090:10:12

No, no... it's OK.

0:10:120:10:15

I want to...

0:10:150:10:17

I want to...

0:10:170:10:18

I'm sorry.

0:10:210:10:22

It's all right, it's OK. It's all right.

0:10:220:10:26

And you worked on the production line?

0:10:290:10:31

-Me, Eileen and Jean.

-But not any more?

-No, thank God.

0:10:310:10:34

I'm the union rep.

0:10:340:10:36

Mind you, the place hasn't changed much since then. Same belt, machinery, everything.

0:10:360:10:41

-Till.

-Oh, this is Mick, my husband.

0:10:410:10:44

He was a mechanic back then but now he's the chief engineer.

0:10:440:10:47

These men are from UCOS. They've come about what happened to Jean and...

0:10:470:10:50

Still ain't caught the bloke then? What a surprise(!) You lot couldn't catch a fever in a swamp.

0:10:500:10:54

-Mick!

-Can we talk about this somewhere else?

0:10:540:10:56

What you doing back here then, eh? Get lost looking for your overtime?

0:10:560:11:00

We don't get much overtime.

0:11:000:11:02

-We're civilians...

-Oh, brilliant.

0:11:020:11:05

You ain't even real coppers?

0:11:050:11:07

So what's prompted all this then all of a sudden?

0:11:070:11:09

Back in '99, we had two months of non-stop prodding and poking,

0:11:090:11:13

everyone here took a DNA test and then nothing, end of story.

0:11:130:11:17

The case has never been closed. It's all part of the reviewing process.

0:11:170:11:21

He's done it again, hasn't he?

0:11:210:11:23

-The rapist.

-Look, this doesn't make sense to me.

0:11:230:11:25

Mr Miller said you were all like one big happy family.

0:11:250:11:29

He said that, did he?! Joke.

0:11:290:11:31

-Mick...

-Well, aren't you?

-No, we ain't, since he came. Look,

0:11:310:11:34

when Miller took over, he cut costs - safety, wages, pension deal.

0:11:340:11:39

Anything that wasn't core production was put out to tender, including security.

0:11:390:11:43

That's one of the main reasons those rapes happened.

0:11:430:11:46

World and his wife could have walked in here back then.

0:11:460:11:49

Well, no-one mentioned that at the time.

0:11:490:11:51

Everyone was frightened about losing their jobs.

0:11:510:11:53

He'd already laid off loads of people who'd been here for years.

0:11:530:11:56

Never mind what Miller says.

0:11:560:11:58

The only thing he gave a toss about was how much the publicity

0:11:580:12:01

was costing him. Am I right or wrong, Tilly?

0:12:010:12:03

He did next to nothing.

0:12:030:12:05

Not for Eileen or the others.

0:12:050:12:08

-Others?

-I meant Jean.

0:12:080:12:11

Yeah, I better get back before Miller docks my pay and all.

0:12:110:12:14

Me too.

0:12:140:12:16

Look, forgive Mick. It's just that he cares.

0:12:160:12:19

And he's right... Miller doesn't.

0:12:190:12:22

"Others"?

0:12:260:12:29

So Eileen Harrison was on her way to the changing room, which was that way.

0:12:290:12:34

HE COUGHS

0:12:340:12:36

That's better.

0:12:380:12:39

I never heard or saw nothing till it was too late.

0:12:440:12:48

No movement, voice, nothing.

0:12:480:12:52

The lights went off.

0:12:520:12:54

He grabbed me and then um...

0:12:540:12:56

Afterwards...

0:12:590:13:01

I was covered in his sweat.

0:13:010:13:03

It stank.

0:13:030:13:05

I couldn't move for what seemed like ages.

0:13:050:13:08

And then when I did...

0:13:080:13:10

he'd gone.

0:13:100:13:13

And you never went back to work?

0:13:130:13:15

Once. But it was no good.

0:13:150:13:18

And since then I've not really been able to go out the house.

0:13:180:13:23

I find it too difficult.

0:13:230:13:26

-Cuddly toys, like a child's.

-Cheers.

0:13:270:13:30

The only magazines and photos are at least ten years old,

0:13:300:13:32

-as if her life had just stopped.

-Hello.

0:13:320:13:35

-Oh, you're all right, are you?!

-Yours are on the bar.

0:13:350:13:38

-How d'you know what I wanted?

-I'm psychic.

0:13:380:13:40

-I just asked for alcohol.

-I might have wanted a fruit juice.

0:13:400:13:43

-Ha! How was Pyramid?

-Interesting.

0:13:430:13:45

-Cheers.

-You can eat as much chocolate as you like inside the factory,

0:13:450:13:48

but you can't take any out.

0:13:480:13:50

-I meant the investigation, Brian.

-Well, Miller, the boss,

0:13:500:13:53

he came on all teeth and smiles, but according to the work-force that's just an act.

0:13:530:13:58

All profit and no heart. And there's hardly anyone left from '99.

0:13:580:14:01

-High turnover?

-Yeah, apparently.

0:14:010:14:03

Miller didn't talk much. He was too keen to rush off.

0:14:030:14:07

The work-force were more help, especially Mick and Tilly Shaw,

0:14:070:14:11

husband and wife. She was a friend of Eileen Harrison, a shop steward now.

0:14:110:14:15

She did say one thing that was odd.

0:14:150:14:17

She, um, she used the word "others"

0:14:170:14:20

when we were talking about the victims - and I mean apart from Eileen.

0:14:200:14:23

-What, "others" as in plural?

-Exactly.

0:14:230:14:26

She made out it was a slip of the tongue,

0:14:260:14:28

that she just meant Jean, but I'm not so sure.

0:14:280:14:30

The victims have anything to say?

0:14:300:14:32

-Both of them saw next to nothing.

-Scenes of crime?

0:14:320:14:36

Well, the changing room's been pulled down, it's not there any more.

0:14:360:14:39

The production line where Eileen was attacked - that's still going.

0:14:390:14:42

Very busy... loud. Noisy.

0:14:420:14:44

Women!

0:14:440:14:46

Is it the sort of place you'd go back to alone?

0:14:460:14:48

Why?

0:14:480:14:50

Well, Eileen Harrison, two hours after her shift ended, goes back

0:14:500:14:54

to a place where only one week before a workmate had been raped.

0:14:540:14:57

She went back for her purse. She might have had her wages in it.

0:14:570:15:02

There is something a bit odd.

0:15:020:15:04

The place where the attack happened.

0:15:040:15:06

It doesn't look like it's actually en route to the changing room.

0:15:060:15:10

I'll tell you what's really bothering me, the man we're

0:15:100:15:12

looking for knew how and where to turn the light switches on and off.

0:15:120:15:16

It had to be someone who knew the inside of that factory.

0:15:160:15:19

Every man who went in and out of Pyramid was DNA tested.

0:15:190:15:22

Someone was missed. They had to have been.

0:15:220:15:24

OK, go back to Pyramid and ask Miller whether there's a

0:15:240:15:27

remote possibility that someone could have missed being tested.

0:15:270:15:30

And while we're there we'll have another look

0:15:300:15:32

-around the shop floor, work out the geography, do it properly.

-OK, good.

0:15:320:15:36

Jack, check out all the private firms outside of Pyramid that had

0:15:360:15:39

-their men DNA tested and ask if somebody could have been missed.

-What about you?

0:15:390:15:43

I'll go and have a word with this Mrs Shaw.

0:15:430:15:46

See if it was a slip of the tongue. Where are you going?

0:15:460:15:49

Well, I thought I would just pop outside and have a quick...

0:15:490:15:51

Oh, no, I don't any more, do I?

0:15:540:15:56

HE COUGHS

0:15:560:15:58

Better out than in!

0:16:010:16:03

SHE KNOCKS

0:16:030:16:04

Tilly Shaw? Detective Superintendent Pullman.

0:16:090:16:13

-You spoke with a couple of my colleagues earlier.

-Oh, yeah.

0:16:130:16:16

-Is it OK if I have another word?

-Er, Mick's at football practice.

0:16:160:16:19

That's OK, it's you I wanted to speak to particularly.

0:16:190:16:22

Thank you.

0:16:220:16:25

Excuse the mess, my husband's a bit of an angling freak.

0:16:250:16:28

You and your husband both worked at Pyramid in 1999 -

0:16:280:16:31

am I right in thinking that most of the staff were women back then?

0:16:310:16:34

Still are. Packing on the production line.

0:16:340:16:37

Piece-work. The pay's not brilliant.

0:16:370:16:39

-Must have been very scary for the women at that time?

-Terrible.

0:16:390:16:42

Especially after we saw how badly affected Jean and Eileen were.

0:16:420:16:46

Eileen was a mate, yeah?

0:16:460:16:48

Is she still?

0:16:480:16:50

We...

0:16:500:16:51

I hardly see her. She's become a bit of a recluse. Not that I blame her.

0:16:510:16:56

-Did you ever talk to the other women about what happened?

-Of course.

0:16:560:17:00

Talked about nothing else for weeks.

0:17:000:17:02

But nobody had a clue who it might have been?

0:17:020:17:04

It's just that he obviously had access to the factory

0:17:040:17:07

and he seems to have picked similar looking victims,

0:17:070:17:10

which suggests that he either knew them or had seen them.

0:17:100:17:12

That's what made it so scary, but...

0:17:120:17:16

Did anything else unusual happen at that time?

0:17:160:17:19

It's just that Brian, my colleague,

0:17:210:17:22

told me that you said "others". As in other victims.

0:17:220:17:25

Not just Eileen and Jean.

0:17:250:17:27

-That was a mistake.

-Right.

0:17:270:17:31

Tilly, we're hunting a serial rapist.

0:17:310:17:34

I don't want to hear from someone else something I should have heard from you.

0:17:340:17:38

There was one girl...

0:17:380:17:40

Nisha Kumar,

0:17:400:17:42

she was a friend of Eileen's...

0:17:420:17:44

-she died, a few months later.

-Died?

0:17:440:17:47

Committed suicide. Her mum and dad found her.

0:17:470:17:50

She hanged herself.

0:17:500:17:54

No. Categorically, no. Even the men that were off sick got tested.

0:17:540:17:59

-Can I have another one?

-Yeah, sure.

0:17:590:18:01

-Are you sure you won't...?

-No, thank you, no.

0:18:010:18:05

-We want to have another look at the shop floor.

-What, now? There's no-one there.

0:18:050:18:09

Well, that's great, cos we'd like to see it exactly how it was when Eileen Harrison was attacked.

0:18:090:18:14

Yeah, it won't take long. We just need to see it in the dark.

0:18:140:18:17

It's very inconvenient.

0:18:170:18:18

I thought you said Pyramid was one, big happy family and that you wanted to help?

0:18:180:18:24

Every man I had who'd worked there was done.

0:18:290:18:32

-You're absolutely sure?

-Come on, there was only five,

0:18:320:18:35

including me, and I never even set foot in the place.

0:18:350:18:38

We were all DNA tested, everybody was cleared and that was that.

0:18:380:18:43

It doesn't seem a lot, Mr Close. Four men to clean a whole factory?

0:18:430:18:47

Oh, in this business you soon figure out the most efficient use of manpower. I run a very tight ship.

0:18:470:18:52

You, er, you don't have the Pyramid contract anymore, do you?

0:18:520:18:56

No.

0:18:560:18:57

Maybe it was a bit too tight?

0:18:570:18:59

Actually, we fell out over safety.

0:18:590:19:01

THEY SPEAK POLISH

0:19:010:19:03

What was that, Polish?

0:19:080:19:10

Aye, I picked a bit up here and there.

0:19:100:19:12

It's easier to find out if somebody's lying to you if you

0:19:120:19:15

speak their language and it's easier to get them to do what you want,

0:19:150:19:18

rather than what they want.

0:19:180:19:21

You know what I'm saying?

0:19:210:19:23

Are we done?

0:19:230:19:25

Yes, yes. Thank you.

0:19:250:19:28

Sorry I couldn't help you.

0:19:280:19:30

Right!

0:19:310:19:32

I should have taken more notice,

0:19:350:19:37

seen what was happening to her, how she changed.

0:19:370:19:39

She changed?

0:19:390:19:41

After the attacks.

0:19:410:19:43

Before, Nisha was always cheerful, lively, funny...

0:19:430:19:49

but then...

0:19:490:19:50

One day I found her crying.

0:19:520:19:55

Then she stopped coming to work for days at a time.

0:19:550:19:59

Nisha and Eileen were always really close, best friends,

0:19:590:20:03

but when Eileen eventually came back to work, it just seemed to make it worse.

0:20:030:20:07

Two days later, Nisha killed herself.

0:20:090:20:12

So Nisha's death took place after the original investigation ended?

0:20:120:20:17

Tilly, do you think there's a possibility that Nisha could have been raped?

0:20:170:20:20

So... What are you two still doing here?

0:20:260:20:28

Get out, get out, that should have been finished hours ago.

0:20:280:20:33

So the women's changing rooms were that way?

0:20:350:20:39

-Yeah.

-And the exit is this way? There's not another changing room?

0:20:390:20:43

No.

0:20:430:20:45

Are you sure it's all right for me to keep eating these?

0:20:450:20:48

Sure, I'm delighted you like them.

0:20:480:20:50

-Very more-ish.

-And you say there isn't another ladies' toilet or anything down here?

0:20:500:20:55

Uh, no. Are you sure you won't have a...

0:20:550:20:57

No, thanks, I'm fine.

0:20:570:20:59

HE COUGHS

0:21:010:21:04

Sorry.

0:21:060:21:08

-Are you all right?

-I think I need...

0:21:140:21:17

-I need...

-HIS STOMACH GURGLES

0:21:170:21:19

-Where's the toilet?!

-Oh, it's...

0:21:190:21:22

COUGHING CONTINUES

0:21:290:21:30

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:21:340:21:35

Now, he always works in the dark, doesn't he?

0:21:460:21:49

Here you go. It's all dark.

0:22:000:22:04

He's creeping about down here.

0:22:060:22:09

She must have been... CLATTERING

0:22:090:22:12

Oh, you little beauty.

0:22:200:22:25

Look at that.

0:22:270:22:28

HE CHUCKLES

0:22:280:22:29

Oh, this is your lucky day.

0:22:290:22:32

HE COUGHS

0:22:320:22:35

Oh!

0:22:350:22:36

Lovely.

0:22:590:23:00

ALARM RINGS

0:23:000:23:02

SECOND ALARM BLARES

0:23:080:23:11

-Hey, "Nudger"! Pyramid's Nudger!

-Nudger! Yes! Of course!

0:23:340:23:39

JINGLE: # Everything you want in a bar and a little bit more

0:23:390:23:44

# Not just chocolate bar a whole lot more!

0:23:440:23:50

# Nuts, biscuit, nougat...

0:23:500:23:52

-# Fudge, raisins chocolate...

-Honeycomb pieces!

0:23:520:23:55

# Everything you want in a bar and a little bit more - Nudger! #

0:23:550:24:01

-Morning.

-Pyramid's Nudger!

-Yes, I remember. It was horrible.

0:24:020:24:06

-Sickly sweet.

-You know what your trouble is?

0:24:060:24:09

You like all this boutique, 70%, fair-trade cobblers...

0:24:090:24:12

It's like tar that stuff. No, I like my chocolate to taste like...sugar!

0:24:120:24:17

If Nudger was so great, why did they take it off the market?

0:24:170:24:21

I recall it was cos they found something in one of them that shouldn't have been there.

0:24:210:24:25

-Like a finger.

-Oh, yes.

-Anyway, moving swiftly on,

0:24:250:24:29

what did you find out at the factory?

0:24:290:24:31

Well, Miller was adamant all the men were DNA tested. Nobody was missed.

0:24:310:24:35

Ditto all the other firms who were in and out of the factory.

0:24:350:24:38

And the rapist must have known the layout of the factory floor,

0:24:380:24:42

because where Eileen was attacked - it's basically a dead end.

0:24:420:24:45

You would only go there if you wanted to open the window or turn the lights on and off.

0:24:450:24:50

Even if she was disorientated by the lights being out,

0:24:500:24:53

where she was attacked was nowhere near the women's changing room. So it doesn't make sense.

0:24:530:24:57

There's something else.

0:24:570:24:59

Tilly Shaw told me that a girl called Nisha Kumar killed herself

0:24:590:25:03

just four months after the rapes, and Nisha worked on the same production line as...

0:25:030:25:06

-The "others".

-Yeah.

0:25:060:25:09

-Was she raped?

-I don't know.

0:25:090:25:11

What I do know is she was Eileen Harrison's best friend, and that

0:25:110:25:14

only days after Eileen came back to work, she hanged herself.

0:25:140:25:17

-Definitely suicide, was it?

-That's what the coroner said.

0:25:170:25:20

I've sent for a copy of the post mortem report.

0:25:200:25:23

In the meantime, Jack, you and I will go and talk to her family -

0:25:230:25:26

-she has a brother, Arun.

-What about us?

0:25:260:25:29

-You said quite a lot of people had been laid off just before the rapes?

-Yeah.

0:25:290:25:32

Why don't you get a list from Miller and see if any of them have ever been in trouble.

0:25:320:25:37

Could take forever!

0:25:370:25:39

We could have got away with this, mate. You keep schtum, all right?

0:25:390:25:44

-You keep schtum yourself.

-All right.

-You're the one with the big mouth.

0:25:440:25:48

HE WHISTLES

0:25:480:25:49

Arun Kumar?

0:26:010:26:03

Detective Superintendent Pullman from the Unsolved Crime and Open Case Squad.

0:26:030:26:07

-This is my colleague Jack Halford.

-Yeah?

0:26:070:26:09

We were wondering if we could have a chat with you about your sister, Nisha?

0:26:090:26:13

What about Nisha?

0:26:130:26:15

-Can we go inside?

-You got a warrant?

0:26:150:26:18

-A warrant? No, no. We just want to...

-Then no, you can't come in.

0:26:180:26:21

-I don't let police in my house.

-Any particular reason?

-Loads.

0:26:210:26:25

Mr Kumar, we're investigating a number of rapes that took place

0:26:250:26:28

in the factory where your sister worked in 1999 and we understand

0:26:280:26:33

that sadly she took her own life just four months after the rapes took place...

0:26:330:26:37

-And?

-Look, whatever dealings,

0:26:370:26:40

whatever experiences you've had with the police before, they weren't with

0:26:400:26:43

me, all right? I'm just trying to find the man who raped these women.

0:26:430:26:46

We don't have any details of your mother and father - are they still around?

0:26:460:26:50

-No. They went back to India.

-When?

0:26:500:26:53

-What's that got to do with you?

-Was it anything to do with Nisha?

0:26:530:26:57

-I don't want to talk any more.

-Was your sister raped, Arun?

0:26:570:27:00

Don't talk about my sister like that, understand?!

0:27:000:27:03

No-one talks about her like that.

0:27:030:27:05

I don't want to talk about your sister.

0:27:050:27:08

I want you to talk about her.

0:27:080:27:09

She's suffered enough.

0:27:090:27:12

Leave her alone.

0:27:120:27:14

Would you call that a reaction or an overreaction?

0:27:160:27:19

He was certainly mad about something.

0:27:190:27:21

Cos his sister was raped, or because we knew about it?

0:27:210:27:24

Hmmm. Look!

0:27:240:27:26

Oh, great(!)

0:27:280:27:30

What is it about policing and leaks to the press?

0:27:330:27:35

It's absolutely bloody outrageous!

0:27:350:27:37

Oh, let's try and be positive, maybe someone will come forward with fresh information.

0:27:390:27:43

I've only ever heard that said on television.

0:27:430:27:45

Well, there is some good news.

0:27:450:27:47

-Go on.

-Nisha Kumar's post mortem.

0:27:470:27:50

The pathologist was looking for signs of sexual assault.

0:27:500:27:53

There were none. In fact, the report clearly states

0:27:530:27:57

that Nisha was a virgin.

0:27:570:27:58

And you were right. In 2000, Pyramid were prosecuted by Health and Safety for one of their Nudger bars...

0:27:580:28:04

And as you said, this chocolate had a piece of human being in it.

0:28:040:28:08

Pyramid blamed the "contamination of imported raisins from Turkey".

0:28:080:28:12

They were found guilty under health and safety and fined £200,000.

0:28:120:28:17

Sales went through the floor and by December they discontinued the line.

0:28:170:28:23

No more Nudger.

0:28:230:28:24

-The company nearly went bust.

-I should bloody well hope so.

0:28:240:28:26

Yeah, but that's not how big business works.

0:28:260:28:29

So, in eight months they'd landed three new contracts

0:28:290:28:33

with separate supermarket chains,

0:28:330:28:35

all selling own-brand chocolate bars, and guess what was in them?

0:28:350:28:39

Nuts, biscuit, nougat.

0:28:390:28:40

Fudge, raisin, chocolate.

0:28:400:28:42

Honeycomb pieces.

0:28:420:28:44

Exactly, so with in 18 months,

0:28:440:28:46

Pyramid had had two rapes, a suicide

0:28:460:28:51

and a finger in one of their best brands.

0:28:510:28:54

That's either an awful lot of bad luck, or an awful lot of coincidences.

0:28:540:28:57

And who says there's no such thing as bad publicity?

0:28:570:29:00

-Whose finger was it? Did they ever find out?

-I don't know.

0:29:000:29:03

Some Turkish raisin-farmer.

0:29:030:29:05

But if Nisha wasn't raped, then why did she kill herself?

0:29:060:29:10

She may not have been raped, but she may have known who the rapist was.

0:29:100:29:14

Well, we got hold of an ex-employees list from Pyramid

0:29:140:29:18

and guess who was on it in '98...

0:29:180:29:21

while he was a student working in his summer break?

0:29:220:29:25

Arun Kumar.

0:29:270:29:28

-Is he!

-Right, do a PNC check,

0:29:280:29:32

see if he's on the DNA database.

0:29:320:29:35

-Are you still not smoking?

-No.

0:29:350:29:37

Well done.

0:29:370:29:39

Sheer will power!

0:29:390:29:41

HE COUGHS

0:29:430:29:45

-You lied to me!

-Eileen, I didn't lie to you.

0:29:480:29:51

Yeah? Why didn't you tell me?! Making out you were worried.

0:29:510:29:54

-You don't give a toss!

-Eileen, listen, just listen to me.

0:29:540:29:57

I didn't tell you what happened cos I didn't want to frighten you.

0:29:570:30:01

So I had to find out through the papers!

0:30:010:30:03

That was nothing to do with us, me or my colleagues, I promise.

0:30:030:30:07

I don't believe it! He can't still be around! It's impossible!

0:30:070:30:10

Yeah, I've got you, but no arrests?

0:30:190:30:22

Yeah, that's great, thanks.

0:30:230:30:25

Arun Kumar hasn't got a criminal record

0:30:250:30:27

-but he has been stop-searched a couple of times.

-But no DNA.

0:30:270:30:31

No, not as... PC BEEPS

0:30:310:30:33

-Bloody hell.

-What?

0:30:360:30:37

Well, I just typed the words "Pyramid Chocolate factory" and "crime" into the computer.

0:30:370:30:43

Look what it's come up with.

0:30:430:30:44

"Mick Shaw, a mechanic at the Pyramid Chocolate factory,

0:30:470:30:50

"was found not guilty of assault at Isleworth Crown court." 2003.

0:30:500:30:55

Yeah, I thought he was bit tense.

0:30:550:30:58

Yeah, I'll tell the guv'nor.

0:30:580:31:00

And about Arun.

0:31:000:31:01

-Oi, oi, where you going?

-Out.

0:31:030:31:06

Are you going to go and see Mick Shaw?

0:31:060:31:08

I'm going to go see a man about a coincidence.

0:31:080:31:11

PHONE RINGS I don't...

0:31:110:31:13

Yes, Guv'nor.

0:31:130:31:14

I'm sure I can do you some kind of deal, yeah.

0:31:190:31:22

Listen, let me call you back, yeah.

0:31:220:31:24

You know this could be construed as harassment.

0:31:240:31:27

-I could be construed as a customer.

-Not dressed like that, mate.

0:31:270:31:30

We're not here to argue, Arun. We just want to talk.

0:31:300:31:33

Talk? Yeah, right. About what?

0:31:330:31:35

I sent for your sister's post-mortem report.

0:31:350:31:37

Now what was probably not made clear to you and your parents -

0:31:370:31:41

for obvious reasons - but is clear from the report

0:31:410:31:44

is that at the time of her death, Nisha was still a virgin.

0:31:440:31:47

She wasn't raped.

0:31:470:31:49

Which begs the question why did she hang herself?

0:31:490:31:52

She was obviously very unhappy about something.

0:31:520:31:56

Did you see that she was unhappy?

0:31:560:31:58

That's a stupid question, of course. We all did.

0:31:580:32:00

Arun, I know you've been stop-searched a couple of times...

0:32:000:32:03

-Oh, here we go!

-..so you're a bit hacked off with the police.

0:32:030:32:06

-Really?! You ain't got a...

-Listen.

0:32:060:32:08

I don't know why your sister killed herself but I think you do.

0:32:080:32:12

You don't like talking about it because you feel guilty in some way.

0:32:120:32:16

-You're full of shit.

-No, no, no, no, I don't think so.

0:32:160:32:19

-I don't need this.

-OK, so who do you blame for your sister's death?

0:32:210:32:25

Did you ever see your sister, Arun?

0:32:250:32:28

In the factory? That summer when you worked there?

0:32:280:32:31

I worked in accounts. We weren't allowed on the shop floor.

0:32:310:32:34

Did you ever meet Eileen Harrison?

0:32:340:32:35

PHONE RINGS Who?

0:32:350:32:37

Come on, she was Nisha's best mate

0:32:370:32:39

-and one of the women who was raped.

-You people are unbelievable!

0:32:390:32:43

A white woman gets raped and you grab the first Asian guy

0:32:430:32:46

-who's name crops up.

-You really believe that, do you?

0:32:460:32:49

Yeah, me and half the guys I grew up with.

0:32:490:32:52

My sister hangs herself

0:32:520:32:54

and the only thing you're interested in is the woman she's mates with.

0:32:540:32:58

No, what I'm interested in is why a happy girl who wasn't raped

0:32:580:33:01

suddenly decides to commit suicide.

0:33:010:33:03

Nah, what you really get off on is giving guys like me a hard time.

0:33:030:33:07

Maybe it's because she knew who the rapist was

0:33:070:33:10

and that made her feel really ashamed.

0:33:100:33:13

Now...are you sure you never went down on that shop floor?

0:33:130:33:18

I loved my sister.

0:33:200:33:22

And I never raped anyone.

0:33:220:33:25

Fine. Then you'd be happy to give us a DNA sample.

0:33:250:33:28

-What?

-So we can rule you out of our investigation?

-You think I'm stupid?

0:33:280:33:33

You think I'm going to let my DNA go on your database?

0:33:330:33:35

It will be destroyed as soon as it's proved negative.

0:33:350:33:38

Yeah, and Father Christmas is Shiva.

0:33:380:33:41

I don't trust ya. And nothing that's ever happened to me makes me want to.

0:33:410:33:46

OK. But I am going to find out who raped those women.

0:33:460:33:50

And I'm going to find out why your sister hanged herself.

0:33:510:33:54

Can I help you?

0:34:340:34:36

Yeah, I'm Gerry Standing. UCOS.

0:34:360:34:38

-What, another one?

-Ah, no, I'm different

0:34:380:34:41

because I remembered your name.

0:34:410:34:43

I thought I'd heard it somewhere before. And I was right.

0:34:430:34:46

-Gi' yersel' a Blue Peter badge.

-GERRY LAUGHS

0:34:460:34:48

See, now you call yourself Close Sanitation

0:34:480:34:52

but in 2001, Close Cleaning Limited was prosecuted

0:34:520:34:56

by the Immigration Services for employing illegal immigrants.

0:34:560:35:00

Bangladeshis, mostly.

0:35:000:35:02

Most of whom had fake ID and all of whom were subsequently deported.

0:35:020:35:07

All right, two Blue Peter badges.

0:35:070:35:10

So, come on, Alex. Come on, come clean, eh?

0:35:100:35:13

Did you have any illegals on your payroll in '99?

0:35:140:35:17

Course you did

0:35:190:35:20

and some of them were working at the factory when the rapes took place.

0:35:200:35:24

I've got no idea what you're on about.

0:35:240:35:26

Oh, yes, you have,

0:35:260:35:28

you didn't say anything, because if they'd been DNA tested

0:35:280:35:31

along with everybody else

0:35:310:35:33

-they would have been outed as illegal immigrants.

-No.

0:35:330:35:36

There was no illegals on my books in 1999. OK?

0:35:360:35:39

Please.

0:35:390:35:41

And it is illegal to smoke in these premises.

0:35:410:35:43

Thanks for the chat, pal.

0:35:430:35:45

Mr Miller? We're here about Nisha Kumar.

0:35:590:36:02

-Who?

-She hanged herself.

0:36:020:36:04

Oh, yeah.

0:36:040:36:06

You didn't mention her to my colleagues,

0:36:060:36:08

-even though it happened months after the rapes.

-Well, yeah,

0:36:080:36:11

since the start of your investigation, I have been somewhat distracted.

0:36:110:36:15

Not least by the harassment from the press.

0:36:150:36:17

I can assure you it wasn't us who spoke to the press.

0:36:170:36:20

We're only here to ask you what you know

0:36:200:36:23

-about Nisha Kumar's suicide.

-The short answer is nothing.

0:36:230:36:26

She worked here. She killed herself.

0:36:260:36:28

Are you saying it's cause and effect?

0:36:280:36:30

I don't appreciate sarcasm.

0:36:310:36:32

What did her family say to you when she died?

0:36:320:36:35

-I don't know. I've never met 'em.

-You must have spoken to them?

0:36:350:36:38

Er, well, she didn't die here, did she?

0:36:380:36:42

So one of your workforce commits suicide

0:36:420:36:44

and you don't communicate with her nearest and dearest?

0:36:440:36:47

-Yeah, we may have sent flowers, I don't know.

-Very touching.

0:36:470:36:51

What about the guy whose finger was found in a bar of Nudger?

0:36:510:36:54

Send him a bunch of flowers when/if he turns up?

0:36:540:36:56

What has that got to do with anything?!

0:36:560:36:58

You seem to have had a great deal of bad luck

0:36:580:37:01

in a very short space of time.

0:37:010:37:03

Yes, well, "Troubles they come, not in single spies but in battalions."

0:37:030:37:07

A little bit like the...U...C...

0:37:070:37:10

Oh, whatever you're called. Listen, she was a young woman,

0:37:100:37:14

-she would have been having boyfriend trouble...

-You're an expert, are you?

0:37:140:37:18

No, no, no, no, I leave that to Human Resources

0:37:180:37:20

and the... the gossips on the shop-floor.

0:37:200:37:23

Excuse me.

0:37:230:37:25

What? Oh, please, I'm busy! Don't bother me with stuff like that.

0:37:250:37:30

Arsehole. Fat lot of good that was. We're getting nowhere.

0:37:300:37:34

There's still Arun. There are other ways to get his DNA.

0:37:340:37:36

No! Not yet.

0:37:360:37:38

Oi, what's the idea of this?

0:37:380:37:41

-Mick's furious. I've got a shop-floor scared to death!

-Them and Eileen both.

0:37:410:37:45

And as I understand it, Mick gets angry about a whole lot of things.

0:37:450:37:49

-What do you mean? What's Eileen been saying?

-Eileen?

0:37:490:37:52

-Nothing? Why? What should she have said?

-I just meant she'd be upset,

0:37:520:37:55

-probably feeling...

-Feeling what? How would you know?

0:37:550:37:58

-You haven't seen her for ten years. Why not?

-She cut herself off.

0:37:580:38:02

No, no. I can understand why Eileen wouldn't want to see anyone.

0:38:020:38:05

That's no reason for you to stop trying to see her.

0:38:050:38:08

-That's what friends are for.

-Depends what you mean by friends.

0:38:080:38:11

What's that supposed to mean?

0:38:110:38:13

What would make you stop being mates

0:38:130:38:15

-with a woman you thought was a really good friend?

-Eileen and Mick?

0:38:150:38:21

When did you find out?

0:38:220:38:25

Not till later.

0:38:250:38:27

She wouldn't see me. I went round...

0:38:270:38:30

Mick was there at the front door. She wouldn't let him in.

0:38:300:38:33

It was over by then. The rape saw to that.

0:38:330:38:36

-That's when I realised.

-I heard you lot were here again!

0:38:360:38:38

Shouldn't you be out hunting rapists?

0:38:380:38:40

We were just talking to your wife, Mr Shaw.

0:38:400:38:43

We've done enough talking to you already.

0:38:430:38:45

Why don't you do your jobs instead of wasting time?

0:38:450:38:47

I wouldn't call finding out about your affair with Eileen Harrison a waste of time.

0:38:470:38:52

But I can understand why you never mentioned it to the original investigation.

0:38:520:38:56

Until now, I couldn't understand

0:38:560:38:58

why Eileen came back to this factory alone.

0:38:580:39:01

Which begs the question -

0:39:020:39:04

-where were you on the night she was raped?

-Me?

0:39:040:39:08

-You think it was me?

-Mick's not a rapist!

0:39:080:39:11

No, he only beats up people outside pubs.

0:39:110:39:13

-Not guilty, mate.

-Fine. Back to the point. Where were you?

0:39:130:39:18

You know where I was. In the pub. With mates.

0:39:180:39:21

Yeah. When you should have been here, waiting for Eileen.

0:39:210:39:25

Only you never turned up, did you?

0:39:250:39:27

But the rapist did.

0:39:270:39:29

My guess is that you felt very guilty, maybe even partly to blame.

0:39:290:39:33

Even though it wasn't your fault.

0:39:330:39:34

-Just shut up!

-Easy, easy.

0:39:340:39:36

Nisha, did she have a boyfriend?

0:39:420:39:45

I don't know. I don't think so.

0:39:450:39:49

Eileen would know.

0:39:490:39:52

Thank you. If, er, anything else occurs to you, anything at all,

0:39:520:39:55

just let me know, yeah?

0:39:550:39:57

What's this? A little light supper?

0:40:230:40:25

-What the hell is that?

-Chocolate. Finger.

0:40:250:40:28

I thought we should get it DNA tested.

0:40:280:40:31

You never know, might not be Turkish

0:40:310:40:33

and we could be looking for a nine-fingered rapist.

0:40:330:40:36

Well, it would narrow the field down a bit.

0:40:360:40:38

-Can I help you?

-Liam Braine, forensic scientist.

0:40:400:40:43

-I understand you have a rather interesting digit to analyse.

-There you go.

0:40:430:40:47

Oh. That is a particularly fine specimen.

0:40:470:40:50

-Do you know the exact nature of the confectionary it was encased in?

-Nudger.

0:40:500:40:54

Ah, Nudger.

0:40:540:40:56

Manufactured by the Pyramid Chocolate Company, 1963 to 2000.

0:40:560:41:00

Chocolate. 30% cocoa solids. Whey, milk, cocoa butter, sugar,

0:41:000:41:03

granulated almond and hazel nuts, shortcake biscuit, nougat,

0:41:030:41:06

-cream fudge, Turkish raisins...

-And honeycomb pieces, yes.

0:41:060:41:09

-How soon can we get the results?

-It should be feasible

0:41:090:41:12

to have a comprehensive set of indices very soon.

0:41:120:41:14

Although this is a particularly nutty problem.

0:41:140:41:17

Nougat is made from a combination of sugar, egg-white and nuts.

0:41:170:41:21

The term is derived from the Old French "nogat",

0:41:210:41:23

itself a corruption of the Provencal word "noga", meaning "nut".

0:41:230:41:27

Too many nuts.

0:41:270:41:29

You can say that again!

0:41:310:41:33

-Evening all.

-Evening.

0:41:370:41:40

I've just been chatting to Alex Close

0:41:400:41:42

because I found out that in 2001,

0:41:420:41:45

he was prosecuted for employing illegal immigrants, so I asked him

0:41:450:41:50

-did he employ any in 1999?

-And he said no.

0:41:500:41:53

Of course. He wouldn't have owned up to it earlier, either.

0:41:530:41:56

But the 2001 lot were all deported.

0:41:560:41:59

-Bangladesh, mostly.

-Of course - the voice!

0:41:590:42:02

Why he didn't talk.

0:42:020:42:04

If the rapist is Bangladeshi, it's going to be a dead giveaway.

0:42:040:42:08

Every time he opens his mouth.

0:42:080:42:09

If a cleaner raped Helen Vestry, they must have got back into the country again.

0:42:090:42:13

-Well, it's not possible.

-Of course it is.

0:42:130:42:15

-They all had fake ID. Illegals come back all the time.

-No.

0:42:150:42:19

I mean when they were deported in '01,

0:42:190:42:22

then they would have had their DNA and their prints taken then.

0:42:220:42:26

We'd have already had a match.

0:42:260:42:28

Unless it was someone who stopped working for Close between '99 and 2001.

0:42:280:42:32

In which case he'll still be running around,

0:42:320:42:35

-untested for DNA.

-Then we're buggered.

0:42:350:42:37

-It'll be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

-Colin Pitchfork.

0:42:370:42:40

Hm?

0:42:400:42:41

Oh, every time I hear that expression, "Needle in a haystack",

0:42:410:42:45

I think Haystack - Pitchfork.

0:42:450:42:47

Of course, Colin Pitchfork.

0:42:470:42:49

The first man to be arrested and sentenced for murder by DNA screening.

0:42:490:42:53

Absolutely right!

0:42:530:42:55

January 1988.

0:42:550:42:58

You see, they said that case was hopeless.

0:42:580:43:00

But then they brought in DNA, they tested 5,000 men and they got him.

0:43:000:43:04

No matter how bad it looks,

0:43:040:43:06

-it's never hopeless.

-Thank you, Mary Poppins.

0:43:060:43:08

Just get us a pint, will you?

0:43:080:43:09

I asked at the station. They said you'd be in here.

0:43:100:43:14

-Is this where you do most of your work?

-The best of it, yeah.

0:43:140:43:18

Arun Kumar. Nisha's brother.

0:43:180:43:21

-Fancy a drink?

-No, I don't drink.

-That's all right, neither does he.

0:43:210:43:24

Got something to say?

0:43:260:43:27

There you go.

0:43:290:43:30

My sister.

0:43:330:43:35

You're absolutely sure she wasn't raped?

0:43:350:43:37

Positive.

0:43:370:43:39

100%?

0:43:390:43:41

We thought...

0:43:440:43:46

We were afraid that she hanged herself because she had been raped.

0:43:460:43:50

What with what we read in the papers.

0:43:500:43:53

How was she in the time before she died?

0:43:530:43:56

She was crying all the time.

0:43:560:43:59

We didn't understand. She'd been so happy.

0:43:590:44:02

-Yeah, that's what everyone says about her.

-No, no.

0:44:020:44:05

She was even happier than normal, because she'd met someone.

0:44:050:44:09

You mean a man?

0:44:090:44:11

She told my parents he was really nice,

0:44:110:44:14

a really lovely bloke, you know.

0:44:140:44:16

My parents were quite pleased, I think.

0:44:160:44:18

-Who was he?

-I don't know.

0:44:180:44:20

But he must have been someone at the factory.

0:44:220:44:26

Have you got a name?

0:44:260:44:28

The man who was seeing her, I mean.

0:44:280:44:30

This "really lovely bloke"?

0:44:300:44:33

You don't believe me.

0:44:350:44:38

OK. Tell me...

0:44:410:44:44

where do I go?

0:44:440:44:46

To take the DNA test?

0:44:460:44:49

-Morning.

-Morning.

-It certainly is.

0:44:500:44:53

Why are you so cheerful?

0:44:530:44:55

Brainiac has got some good news.

0:44:550:44:57

Good. Care to enlighten me?

0:44:570:44:59

Having re-examined samples from the finger,

0:44:590:45:01

it's clear that, while male, it's previous owner is not the rapist.

0:45:010:45:05

-By the same token, it is almost certainly not Turkish.

-Not?

0:45:050:45:08

I thought you'd be delighted.

0:45:080:45:10

-Turkish delighted.

-Anything else?

0:45:100:45:14

Having isolated his DNA, cluster sampling models

0:45:140:45:16

place his likely point of origin some way to the east,

0:45:160:45:19

-on the Indian subcontinent. Probably...

-Bangladesh.

0:45:190:45:22

Yes, very good.

0:45:220:45:24

But that is not the interesting part.

0:45:240:45:26

-Care to hear the rest?

-Knock yourself out.

0:45:260:45:28

I've isolated a second DNA sample from a particle of blood

0:45:280:45:32

between the fingernail and the epithelium,

0:45:320:45:35

-belonging to another man. And...

-You know his likely point of origin?

0:45:350:45:38

Better than that. I know who he is.

0:45:380:45:41

-What?!

-Not the finger owner.

0:45:410:45:43

The man from under the fingernail.

0:45:430:45:45

-He's in the national DNA database.

-Who is he?

0:45:450:45:49

So, Mick, can you tell us again about the punch-up you had in 2002?

0:45:490:45:53

Outside the Bell pub in Ealing.

0:45:530:45:56

What about it? I got off, remember?

0:45:560:45:58

Yeah, but you were arrested. So your DNA was taken.

0:45:580:46:01

Yeah. So what?

0:46:010:46:03

Can you tell me why that same DNA,

0:46:030:46:05

yours, was discovered under the nail of a severed finger

0:46:050:46:10

that turned up in a bar of Nudger in 2000?

0:46:100:46:13

No. No idea.

0:46:130:46:14

Perhaps you've some idea about who the finger belonged to?

0:46:140:46:18

-No.

-I don't believe you.

0:46:180:46:20

I don't believe this.

0:46:200:46:22

Interview suspended at 11.22am.

0:46:250:46:28

Oooh. You've upset her now.

0:46:350:46:38

Eileen, thank you so much for coming in,

0:46:410:46:43

I know this is very hard for you.

0:46:430:46:45

But let me start by saying that you're free to leave at any time.

0:46:450:46:49

What is it you wanted to know?

0:46:490:46:51

Mick Shaw. You had an affair with him.

0:46:510:46:54

-Yeah.

-He must have been very upset after what happened to you?

0:46:560:47:01

-Yeah.

-Not least because had he turned up on the night of the attack

0:47:010:47:04

like he was supposed to have done,

0:47:040:47:06

you probably wouldn't have been raped at all.

0:47:060:47:08

Eileen...

0:47:100:47:11

there is a sample of Mick's DNA under the nail of the finger

0:47:110:47:16

that was found in a Nudger bar a year after you were raped.

0:47:160:47:21

-What?

-We think that the finger belongs to a man from Bangladesh.

0:47:210:47:26

How do you think that might have happened?

0:47:270:47:29

I...I don't know.

0:47:310:47:33

Do you remember what you said

0:47:330:47:35

when you found out the rapist had struck again last year?

0:47:350:47:38

You said "I can't believe he's still around. It's impossible."

0:47:390:47:44

Now at first, I thought you said that because you were afraid.

0:47:440:47:47

But what you really meant was you couldn't believe he was still alive.

0:47:470:47:51

I, I want to go now.

0:47:530:47:55

Nisha... You and she were best friends, weren't you?

0:47:550:47:58

Why did she kill herself?

0:48:010:48:03

I don't know.

0:48:030:48:05

She had a boyfriend, didn't she?

0:48:050:48:07

A boy she really liked. A boy that she'd fallen in love with.

0:48:070:48:10

Where is he?

0:48:130:48:15

What happened to him, Eileen?

0:48:170:48:18

He wasn't very nice.

0:48:220:48:25

-Nice?

-This...cleaner.

0:48:250:48:28

He was really creepy.

0:48:280:48:31

Nisha thought the sun shone out of his arse, but it didn't.

0:48:310:48:35

I told her. I warned her.

0:48:350:48:37

Shakib's only after one thing.

0:48:370:48:39

-Shakib?

-Yeah, um, oh...

0:48:390:48:43

I used to see him staring at me, watching me.

0:48:430:48:47

I even saw his boss tell him off.

0:48:470:48:50

And, and, and then when Jean got raped I knew who it was,

0:48:500:48:55

but I didn't say anything.

0:48:550:48:58

I should have. And then maybe I wouldn't have been...

0:48:580:49:02

Did you tell Nisha that was what had happened?

0:49:020:49:05

No. You told Mick.

0:49:070:49:09

He said... He said not to worry any more

0:49:090:49:12

and that he'd taken care of him.

0:49:120:49:13

And what do you think he meant by that?

0:49:130:49:16

Mick said everything was going to be OK

0:49:170:49:21

and that this guy would, um, never,

0:49:210:49:25

never ever rape anyone again.

0:49:250:49:27

But he didn't rape anyone, Eileen.

0:49:270:49:29

I am afraid that you got it wrong.

0:49:300:49:33

What? What?!

0:49:330:49:36

Looks a bit edgy to me to me.

0:49:430:49:45

-Yeah.

-Nervous.

0:49:450:49:48

Ha! He's a smoker.

0:49:480:49:51

He's desperate for a cigarette.

0:49:510:49:52

Ah, yes. Of course.

0:49:520:49:54

Right now, he'd sell his mum for a smoke.

0:49:540:49:58

That's all you had to do in the old days,

0:49:580:50:00

before they outlawed it, of course.

0:50:000:50:03

Bide your time. Rack up the tension and then light a cigarette.

0:50:030:50:07

Blow smoke all over them.

0:50:070:50:09

They'd be crawling up the wall

0:50:090:50:11

and then you'd just offer them a cigarette and Bob's your uncle.

0:50:110:50:15

Those were the days. Remember?

0:50:150:50:17

TAPE RECORDER BUZZES

0:50:250:50:27

Interview recommenced at 11.34am. Same persons present.

0:50:330:50:36

-Mr Shaw, you do still understand you're still under caution?

-Yeah.

0:50:360:50:40

So, Michael - you don't mind if I call you Michael?

0:50:400:50:44

You killed the wrong man.

0:50:450:50:46

What you talking about?

0:50:480:50:49

The finger's DNA doesn't match that of the man who raped Eileen,

0:50:490:50:55

or Jean Saunders, or the woman last year

0:50:550:50:59

and DNA doesn't lie.

0:50:590:51:02

-Shakib.

-I don't know what you're going on about.

0:51:020:51:04

The contract cleaner. The illegal immigrant.

0:51:040:51:07

Nisha's boyfriend.

0:51:070:51:08

You see, Eileen told us. How she told you

0:51:100:51:13

that he was the man that raped her

0:51:130:51:15

and how you killed him.

0:51:150:51:18

Which is worse, Mick - knowing that you killed the wrong man?

0:51:180:51:21

Or knowing you got it wrong cos of her?

0:51:210:51:24

Must be very hard to take.

0:51:240:51:26

Doing life for a mistake.

0:51:260:51:28

No.

0:51:280:51:29

No, she... No. No!

0:51:290:51:32

No, she said it was Shakib! She said Shakib raped her.

0:51:320:51:38

Who needs cigarettes?

0:51:380:51:40

-EILEEN:

-"Mick said everything was going to be OK

0:51:410:51:45

"and that this guy would, um, never, never ever rape anyone again."

0:51:450:51:49

He attacked Shakib on the shop-floor

0:51:510:51:53

after the production line had closed down for the night.

0:51:530:51:56

Shakib fell against the start button of the conveyor belt.

0:51:560:51:59

The machine trapped his arm and severed his finger.

0:51:590:52:02

During which time, Shaw beat him to death with a wrench.

0:52:020:52:04

He then took the body away in a plastic bag in his van,

0:52:040:52:08

weighted it down and dumped it in a gravel pit

0:52:080:52:10

-where he used to go fishing.

-Nice.

0:52:100:52:13

So he must've known that Shakib didn't take the test.

0:52:130:52:16

And when everybody else proved negative after they tested for DNA,

0:52:160:52:21

it just convinced him that what Eileen had said was true.

0:52:210:52:24

What am I going to tell Strickland?

0:52:240:52:26

We're supposed to be hunting a rapist

0:52:260:52:28

and we've ended up solving a murder that no-one knew had happened.

0:52:280:52:32

-Mick and Eileen knew.

-Shit!

0:52:320:52:34

WHIRRING

0:52:340:52:37

"Really creepy..."

0:52:370:52:39

WHIRRING

0:52:400:52:43

"I even saw his boss tell him off

0:52:440:52:46

"and, and, and then when Jean got raped, I..."

0:52:460:52:50

"I even saw his boss tell him off."

0:52:500:52:53

Alex Close was his boss

0:52:530:52:55

and Close told me he'd never set foot inside the factory.

0:52:550:52:58

But Close was tested and his DNA was negative, wasn't it?

0:52:580:53:02

Colin Pitchfork.

0:53:020:53:03

He didn't do a sample at the start, he got his mate to do it

0:53:030:53:06

and they only caught him because his mate was boasting

0:53:060:53:09

that Pitchfork paid him £200 to take the test and pretend to be him.

0:53:090:53:13

That's right, he did.

0:53:130:53:15

And Close told me he could get his employees to do anything

0:53:150:53:18

and I believe him, because they're terrified of him.

0:53:180:53:20

-What about the bakery?

-Well, if I'm right, he must have been there too.

0:53:210:53:25

Helen?

0:53:440:53:46

Helen, do you recognise him?

0:53:460:53:48

He's, er,

0:53:510:53:52

he's Scottish.

0:53:520:53:54

He came in to the shop about, um,

0:53:540:53:57

18 months ago. To see about the, er, the cleaning.

0:53:570:54:01

-To try and get the cleaning contract.

-Right.

-He didn't get it.

0:54:010:54:04

But, um, the thing was he then came in two or three times,

0:54:040:54:09

as a customer.

0:54:090:54:10

He used to buy, um...

0:54:100:54:13

a pasty. It was, it was always the same thing.

0:54:130:54:17

A pasty.

0:54:190:54:21

Fond of those, are you?

0:54:280:54:30

Aye, my little weakness.

0:54:310:54:33

No, I don't think that's your weakness, Mr Close.

0:54:330:54:36

-Who's this, your care worker?

-Detective Superintendent Pullman.

0:54:360:54:40

I'd just like to ask you a few more questions. Final questions.

0:54:400:54:43

You must lead boring lives.

0:54:430:54:45

I want to know if you recall a young Bangladeshi man

0:54:450:54:48

who worked as a cleaner at the Pyramid Chocolate factory.

0:54:480:54:51

-Name of Shakib?

-I've told you...

0:54:510:54:53

This man, you would remember - he failed to turn up for work one day.

0:54:530:54:56

In fact, he disappeared during the night shift at Pyramid.

0:54:560:54:59

No.

0:55:010:55:03

Right. So would you mind telling me

0:55:030:55:06

-where you've been for the last nine years?

-Here and there.

0:55:060:55:09

Where were you after your previous firm went bust?

0:55:090:55:12

Poland. Most of the time.

0:55:120:55:14

Right. So if I were to send a sample of your DNA to the Polish police,

0:55:140:55:19

that would be OK with you, would it?

0:55:190:55:21

-Sure.

-No, I'm sorry, I didn't make myself clear.

0:55:210:55:24

-Not the old sample. A new one.

-No, I've already given a DNA sample.

0:55:240:55:29

Now that's where we have a bit of a problem, Mr Close,

0:55:290:55:32

-because we don't think you have.

-Er, yes,

0:55:320:55:36

I was tested, along with my workmen.

0:55:360:55:38

No. In 1999, you sent someone along to pretend to be you.

0:55:380:55:42

Someone with your ID and they took the test.

0:55:420:55:46

You see, the rapist we're looking for never spoke,

0:55:460:55:49

so at first we assumed he was an Asian

0:55:490:55:52

and his voice would give him away.

0:55:520:55:53

It never occurred to us that he could have been Scots.

0:55:530:55:56

Is this what the Met get up to now, eh?

0:55:580:56:01

Is this what you build your cases on? This is a load of shite.

0:56:010:56:04

This man raped two women in 1999 and he's since raped again, Mr Close.

0:56:040:56:08

If you were so happy to help back then by giving a DNA sample,

0:56:090:56:13

what possible reason could you have for not doing so now?

0:56:130:56:16

Now, then, Mr Close, you're sweating.

0:56:370:56:40

-That mine?

-Bought with you in mind.

-Thank you.

0:56:480:56:51

Did you speak to him? Strickland?

0:56:510:56:53

-It was a bad line. I had to make it brief.

-Lucky you.

0:56:530:56:56

What'd he say?

0:56:560:56:58

-He was surprised.

-Bloody cheek.

0:56:580:57:00

He asked me, "What cracked the case?"

0:57:000:57:02

-I said, "Colin Pitchfork." He said, "Who?"

-Unbelievable.

0:57:020:57:06

-That's modern policing for you.

-Where's Gerry?

0:57:060:57:09

Outside.

0:57:090:57:11

Said he wanted a bit of fresh air.

0:57:110:57:13

Gerry's never wanted fresh air in his life.

0:57:140:57:17

I bloody knew it!

0:57:270:57:28

Look, I did try giving up, honestly.

0:57:310:57:33

Anyway, I never said I was going to stop smoking.

0:57:330:57:37

I said I was going to stop smoking cigarettes.

0:57:370:57:40

Your lungs.

0:57:400:57:42

Yeah, but I felt so ill, honestly. I couldn't bear it!

0:57:420:57:44

Bear it!

0:57:480:57:50

# Oh, the end of me old cigar Tra-la tra-la tra-la...

0:57:530:57:57

-BOTH:

-# Everybody knows me by the end of me old cigar. #

0:57:570:58:00

THEY LAUGH

0:58:000:58:02

# It's all right, it's OK

0:58:020:58:04

# It's all right, doing fine
