Proud.
This, unexpectedly, made me proud to be British. These Judges are so far removed from my life, but I felt glad that they are there. They have prevented some of the worst excesses of our governments, and long may they do so. Our gut reaction to, for example, terrorist situations, might be "lock 'em up and throw away the key", but if we are locking people up without providing them with, either evidence against them, or the opportunity to defend themselves, then we are on VERY shaky ground. Just imagine if it happened to one of your kin. It all looks a bit different then.....doesn't it?

Documentary in which four Justices of the Supreme Court, the UK's final court of appeal, talk about the nature of their work and how they make decisions. The programme explores how fair the rulings of the court's members - 10 men and one woman - are, and whether their feelings ever influence their judgements. In its first 14 months, cases included MPs' expenses, which resulted in the prosecution of David Chaytor, and amendments to the status of pre-nuptial agreements. Narrated by Aidan Gillett
