In Oxford, in a doorway to a house, a man lies dead. No suspects, no witnesses, no sign of forced entry. Like a real-life episode of Morse, Adrian Greenwood was an antique dealer stabbed over thirty times in his own home. The story may have the feel and look of a drama, but in reality somebody’s loved one has now been brutally murdered.

As every minute passes, DNA is lost, CCTV is overwritten, and anyone who may have seen something is starting to forget. The pressure is on the Detective Superintendent Kevin Brown.

With unprecedented access to Thames Valley Police Major Crime Unit, this film follows all the twists and turns of this real-life whodunit.

About the Filmmaker

Jezza Neumann produced and directed Catching A Killer: The Wind in the Willows Murder. He is a multi-award winning documentary maker; his first film as a director, China’s Stolen Children, won three British Academy Awards. He has followed up on this success with a number of award winning films, including the feature length War Child and the multi-award winning Zimbabwe’s Forgotten Children. His 2011 film Poor Kids had an incredible impact, leading to questions being asked in the House of Commons during Prime Minister's Question Time, and inspiring over 950 viewer comments on the BBC Blog pages - over double the previous record number. In 2013 Jezza was awarded the prestigious Robert F Kennedy Journalism Award for his film Poor Kids USA, set in America and made for PBS Frontline
