A television series depicting what is considered one of the largest miscarriages of justice in UK history achieves what has not been achieved after decades of complaints.

The series tells what happened in the so-called Post Office Scandal of the British Postal Company, in which hundreds of innocent employees were accused of theft, fraud and false accounting.

Many of them paid to go to prison for crimes they never committed, due to a faulty computer system, a web of lies and a lack of concern on the part of company managers and authorities.

Those affected have been trying to obtain justice for more than two decades.
