TV tonight: the civil rights lawyer elected Philadelphia’s high lawman | Tv & radio

Philadelphia DA

10 p.m., BBC Four

A remarkable eight-part series from Storyville, following the election of outsider and progressive prosecutor Larry Krasner as district attorney for Philadelphia – a city with one of the highest incarceration rates in the United States. We opened in autumn 2017, when civil rights activist Krasner submitted his application, much to the amazement of the public prosecutor’s office – an institution against which he had sued a large part of his career. And it doesn’t take long for him to cause controversy by announcing a proposed new cash deposit policy.

Daniel Day-Lewis’ Oscar-winning twist is the dark heart of Anderson’s tale of blood, sweat, and black gold in 20th century California.
