  • That Was Then: Series 1 and 2

  • The truth won’t stay hidden forever.

    Twenty years after a murder, the convicted man walks free. His supporters claim a victory for justice, but for the murdered man’s friends, life implodes. Old lies re-surface, and new questions haunt them.

    What really happened back then, in the student house they all shared? The house where Ben died?

    Anna was one of the victim’s housemates, back when they were students. Now she is a vicar, but back then she did media studies. When the case opens up again she finds all her old student films in the loft – films about her housemates – and she watches them with new eyes. Covertly recording on her phone, she starts to unravel what really happened.

    Starring Rosie Cavaliero, best known as DS Susan Reinhardt in Prey, and Marion in Unforgotten.

    This collection also includes a 10-minute behind-the-scenes feature: ‘The Making of That Was Then’.

    Produced and directed by Jonquil Panting.
