Based on a true story that shocked a nation, this powerful four-part factual drama, from BAFTA winning writer and executive producer Jeff Pope (Appropriate Adult, The Widower), centres on the devastating impact on a city of an innocent child’s murder amid a wave of gang violence. In August 2007, while walking home from football practice in his England kit, 11-year-old Rhys Jones was unwittingly caught in the crossfire of a gang war. Shot in the neck outside the Fir Tree pub in Liverpool’s Croxteth, he died in his mother’s arms. Made with the support of Rhys’s parents, Melanie and Steve, Little Boy Blue explores their ordeal and looks at the agonising dilemmas of witnesses faced with becoming pariahs for speaking up. It tells the story of the long and extensive investigation, led by Merseyside Police SIO David Kelly, that eventually brought Rhys’s murderer and his associates to justice.

  • Fine Drama from ITV

    By Sunray Minor
    ITV have handled this story extremely well. It grips from the very beginning with fine casting and exceptionally talented acting. The true story of a tragic and needless death of a little boy will take the viwever on a journey through the full range of human emotion and hold the attention from start to finish. Well worth watching.
