ID revisits cases from the past in a new show
MUMBAI: ID (Investigation Discovery) will reopen some of the most memorable cases for its viewers in its new series ‘A Crime to Remember’. Viewers can look forward to crimes of yesteryear come to life in this new series. With riveting storytelling and artful recreations, each episode plays out like a period thriller and transports viewers back into those enthralling days of old.
The show will premiere on 2 February 2015 and will air Monday to Saturday at 9 pm only on ID.
The show will be presented in a new high-end cinematic style, using the visual grammar of movies to bring the bygone era to life. To properly illustrate each time period, the series stays true to the fashion and styles while highlighting the cultural taboos and social norms in each case. Each story is driven by the narrative of a fictional bystander who ‘knew’ the victim, while reporters who covered the case explain how the crime and investigation impacted society.
Discovery executive VP, GM South Asia, Southeast Asia Rahul Johri said “In a short period since its launch, ID has captured the viewers’ attention with its unique and differentiated programmes depicting true stories of crime and investigation. ‘A Crime to Remember’ introduces a new storytelling format and takes viewers back in time, to unravel secrets of sensational cases.”

While murder may have been the same back then, the world was different. Scientific technology was limited, relationships were complicated, but murder was often seen as a better way out of a marriage than divorce. The show will weave together these cultural effects seamlessly into each story, unpacking the challenges of conducting a murder investigation in a pre-forensics, intolerant era.
