By Tilly Black.
A dramatised account of the sensational 1885 Old Bailey trial which followed campaigning journalist and newspaper editor William Thomas Stead's procurement of a 13-year-old girl for the purposes of prostitution - a perverse and amazingly successful media stunt enacted to highlight the plight of working-class children sold into vice, and to raise the legal age of consent.
