Sheriff Court

1x60 mins

In Sheriff Court the cameras enter the hidden world of a Scottish court and offer a rare glimpse of what goes on behind-the-scenes in the criminal justice system.

Glasgow Sheriff Court is the busiest court in Europe, handling over 11,000 criminal and civil cases a year.

Criminal cases take up the majority of the court's time - offences such as drug-related crime and violent assault fill the 26-court complex daily.
