Crown Court was a British daytime TV series which ran throughout 1970s and 80s and was based around a unique concept. It was a legal drama where writers would concoct a fictitious to be performed in a courtroom by actors, but it was all presented in front of real citizens who were selected for jury duty and would come up with a real verdict for the fictitious case they just heard. A couple of notable actors actually performed in the staged trials on Crown Court, including an unknown Peter Capaldi, who played a young punk that was called to the witness stand in this 1984 episode. However, because of Capaldi’s thick Scottish accent, I honestly cannot understand one word he says here.
