Garrow’s Law returned to BBC1 for a third series on Sunday 13th November 2011. The popular period legal drama centers around the life of 18th Century pioneering barrister William Garrow, and follows trials at the Old Baily in Georgian London. Set against a backdrop of corruption and lawlessness, Garrow and his defense team work to uncover the truth and fight for justice on a series of cases, creating powerful enemies both in the corrupt underworld and among the political elite.
Having impressed Twenty Twenty Productions with his test grades, Andrew Daniel was then asked to grade the 4 x 60 minute episodes for them. The show was shot S-LOG on ARRI’s ALEXA camera using largely natural light, and for the first time some handheld footage was used on the programme - as such, the brief for the grade was a more natural, rich but gritty feel to reflect the courtroom drama.

In 2010 Garrow’s Law was awarded the RTS Television Award for Best History.
