  7. The First 48

    My favourite TV show right now is 'The First 48', shown on Crime & Investigation Network (Sky 531). It follows the first 48 hours of murder cases, as apparently the Detectives' chances of solving a murder case are halved if they don't get a lead in the first 48 hours. The camera follows...
