Life And Death Row: Love Triangle  tells the story of Heather, a beautiful young wife and mother, lured to a horrific death. Her adulterous husband, Joshua, and his pregnant lover, Emilia, are brought in for questioning. One Murder. Two suspects. Which one is telling truth?

This was landmark short form documentary storytelling for BBC Three, and our first commission for the channel after they became an online only service. The idea came about from a project TV Producer/Director Graeme McCaulay had produced on Taster using the Interlude software. We wanted to apply this form of interactive storytelling to a landmark documentary series but changed tack when it was clear BBC Three’s platform would not be able to house an interactive media player.

Told episodically in iPlayer and with supporting evidence released on social media and on BBC Three’s website LADR Love Triangle reached over 3 million people and pointed the way to a new form of storytelling for the BBC.

In 2017 LADR Love Triangle was nominated for a Broadcast Digital Award  & Rockie award at the BANFF world media festival.
