The first part of a four-part series broadcast on the BBC Home Service on 31 August 2009 in which Helena Kennedy QC addresses the question.

In the second episode to be broadcast on Monday 7 September 2009, Helena Kennedy QC seeks to unravel the recent history of attacks upon judicial independence.

The series may be listened to by downloading the BBC 'i Player'
