Violence is a major problem on Britain's streets, but what happens when a single punch takes a life? Aaron Roach Bridgeman investigates in Channel 5 documentary One Punch Killer.
Speaking about the documentary, Bridgeman wrote on Facebook:
A few years ago, I said to countless agents, TV producers, & anyone else who would listen that I had all these different ideas about how I really passionately wanted to bring to life & front a TV documentary as a presenter / producer. There wasn't much interest or belief. There was however, 1 of my ideas that nearly came to life after months of development, but in the end everything had to be scrapped.
Fast forward a couple years…TONIGHT the TV advert to 'One Punch Killer' – a 1 hour documentary special presented by myself was shown on TV for the first time. I have not just been able to use my presenting skills, but also my research skills, producing skills & even my poetry skills, all thanks to the faith that ITN Productions have placed in me & my ability.
I am so thankful for the opportunity, especially as I have been able to speak about, explore, investigate & raise awareness on such an important subject. Not many of us have gone without raising a fist to punch at least once in our lives…
BUT how many of us realise the true extent of how detrimental that 1 punch can be??
One Punch Killer airs Monday 15th August 10pm on Channel 5
