This one-hour CBS Reality Original documentary explores and highlights the different elements of domestic abuse, including coercion and stalking, that so often lead to serious violence or homicide. The programme reveals the patterns and warning signs that are present in almost all abusive relationships and explains the definitive characteristics of most abusers. Jemma Cadle and Samantha Howlett describe their abusive relationships and how with support they eventually regained control and secured convictions. Other key contributors include criminologist and leading expert in domestic homicide, Jane Monckton-Smith, DCI Jo Smith, and DC Julia Jacobs who explain the challenges and complexities faced by the police.

With her outspoken style, hard-hitting decisiveness and biting wit, Judge Judith Sheindlin single-handedly reinvented the courtroom genre and in the process has become a genuine pop culture phenomenon. A former New York family court judge known for her ability to cut through a dispute and get to the core of the emotional issue at hand, Judge Judy acts as a true moral compass for people seeking guidance, resolution and a little common sense in their often complicated lives. Judge Judy’s goal is to make a permanent and worthwhile impression that will discourage repeat offenders and help heal families and victims of injustice.
