This four part ITV1 and ITVX drama tells the story of one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in British legal history. Hundreds of innocent sub-postmasters and postmistresses were wrongly accused of theft, fraud and false accounting due to a defective IT system. Many of the wronged workers were prosecuted, some of whom were imprisoned for crimes they never committed, and their lives were irreparably ruined by the scandal.

Following the landmark Court of Appeal decision to overturn their criminal convictions, dozens of former sub postmasters and postmistresses have been exonerated on all counts as they battled to finally clear their names. They fought for over ten years finally proving their innocence and sealing a resounding victory, but all involved believe the fight is not over yet, not by a long way…

Mr Bates vs the Post Office is produced by ITV Studios and Little Gem. Executive producers are Patrick Spence, Gwyneth Hughes, Natasha Bondy and Ben Gale on behalf of Little Gem, James Strong and Joe Williams. The writer is Gwyneth Hughes, the director is James Strong and the producer is Chris Clough.

Followed by a Q&A with:

Toby Jones, Actor
Monica Dolan, Actor
Will Mellor, Actor
