Presented by one of Britain’s best-known actresses and tv personalities, the six-part series explores what it means to live with the trauma of enduring and surviving horrific crimes and the incredible effort and courage required to rebuild a life in the aftermath. At the heart of each episode is the story of someone who has been forced to confront unimaginable horror and yet has lived to tell the tale, in crimes ranging from a vicious and unprovoked stabbing by a stranger and a diabolical acid attack, to the victim of a three-hour filmed torture session and a thirteen-year reign of terror and abuse.  In each case, Denise Welch meets up with the survivors to find out what was going through their minds at every stage of the crime, how they found the inner strength to survive and face their attackers in court, and how the devastating turn of events irrevocably altered their lives. The series will feature interviews with friends and family of the survivors and a criminal barrister's expert commentary. (Photo of Denise Welch taken by Claire Grogan Photography)
