The Alan Morris Trial

In August 2014, Title Role collaborated with ITV Granada to produce a special investigation into historic abuse allegations at St Ambrose College in Hale Barns, south Manchester.

Former chemistry teacher Deacon Alan Morris was jailed for nine years for offences against 10 boys between 1972 and 1990.

The piece was presented by Title Role producer David Nolan, a former pupil at the school in the 70s.

Title Role cameras followed officers throughout the trial and told David’s story of his time at the school and the treatment he received at the hands of Alan Morris.

Many other victims and witnesses came forward and contacted police after the broadcast.
