Gun No. 6



Gun No. 6


Thursday 3 October 8.30pm Channel 039

This is the story of how a single handgun ended up in the hands of as many as 11 different gunmen in the space of 6 years.  Families have been torn apart, neighbourhoods distrupted and lives lost. The only thing that connected all of these crimes is the weapon itself – Gun no. 6. Its grip bears the fingerprints of angry young men, chaotic robbers and brutal assasins. Changing hands for years, used in 11 shootings and 3 murders, this is the story of Britain's deadliest illegal gun. Made by a BAFTA-Winning team, this bold hybrid of a doco/drama charts every shooting of Gun No. 6 and confronts us with the realities of modern gun crime. The film honours the lives lost through the testimony of loved ones, but it also addresses the perpetrators of gun crime too. Winner of Best Single Documentary at the BAFTA TV Awards 2019.
