DOCUMENTARIES

Currently In Production – APF TV camera crew working on our new documentary film “Dying to Belong”

Reformed criminal Andrew Pritchard, who once held the title of being one of Britain’s most notorious drug smugglers, takes us into the very heart of ‘Lawless Britain’ to find the human story behind the gangs involved in the Postcode Wars.  

A hard hitting in depth investigation into Street Crime, Postcode Gangs and County Lines. Instead of the usual ‘outside looking in’ voyeuristic observational take on the crimes and criminals involved fronted by the likes of Danny Dyer, Ross Kemp, etc; instead we tell the story from the ‘inside looking out’… a serious investigative piece told from the gang members point of view.  

Nobody woke up one morning and said I want to be in a gang… you all just grew up in the same area and both areas happened to be deprived areas with the same problems but the main problem you have is you live on an impoverished estate, people have not much money there, that’s one of the biggest problems, they’ve got no money. How can we make money? We can’t get no jobs so you turn to drugs.  24-year-old Londoner

Podcasts

Crime Café

the definitive true crime podcast.

Drop in and join us for a cup of tea and a slice of reality… as we delve into the real world of crime and justice. 

Share a table with a group of ex-criminals, wander over to the police officers who brought them to justice, bump into those whose job is to keep them secure in our prisons, stand in the queue with the men and women who work to rehabilitate them, listen to the survivors and victims of crime and meet those who are trying to change the system.  Or simply sit back and let us tell you a story…

Crime Café is an informed, insightful and at times controversial take on the world of crime, presented in a variety of formats (round-table discussions, investigative reports, interviews, topical analysis, vox pop, features, music and drama) exploring all aspects of crime, justice, punishment and rehabilitation… past and present.

Anchored by  ex-offender Andrew Pritchard alongside a criminologist in a vibrant café atmosphere, we meet the people who live and work on the frontline and tell their stories.
