The Crime List

If you remember last year's special, The Health List, you will know what to expect here: Jon Snow in the studio, presenting a nationwide survey of the state of affairs and unveiling a league table grading the performance records of the public authorities.

The policing of crime is the theme, one which is very much in the political spotlight and bound to be a major election issue.

With stories from around Britain, showing both police shortcomings and imaginative initiatives, this programme unveils its findings and reveals the realities of how the police are performing.

Major surprises are promised.
