Mr. Bates vs the post office / a Little Gem production ; directed by James Strong ; written by Gwyneth Hughes.

After a computer system upgrade, money started to seemingly disappear from British post office branches, and the managers were blamed -- accused of theft, fired, and many charged and sent to prison -- leaving lives, marriages, and reputations in ruins. When Alan Bates was fired, he refused to accept the blame, instead bringing together a group of other wrongly-accused sub-postmasters to form an alliance to fight one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in British legal history.
