INT STUDIO – DAY

PRESENTER
Hello and welcome to
Crimewatch. We are joined
with dozens of senior
detectives from across
the UK hoping that your
call will help solve a
major crime; like the
senseless murder of Jim.
  1  
Just one week after
Valentine’s Day Jim Khan
was attacked and murdered
at his office in
Manchester.
We will now see a
reconstruction of that
fateful day. Take a look.

INT STUDIO – DAY

PRESENTER
Well there you have it,
the appalling murder of
Jim Khan. I am joined now
by Detective Chief
Inspector Andrew Howard.

PRESENTER TURNS TO FACE ANDREW

PRESENTER
We have just seen the
reconstruction. Tell us,
what important factors do
we want the public to look
out for?

ANDREW
Well, firstly, we are very
curious to have a word
with the two men who were
seen entering the building
very suspiciously. We
think that one of the men
could be Yad, Jim’s
colleague, and the other,
possibly, an accomplice.
If you remember the
cleaner managed to get a
glimpse of one of the men.

ANDREW
Next, The lady who was
seen falling by the lift.

PRESENTER
Do you think she might
have been part of the plot
to cause a distraction?

CUT TO

IMAGE FROM CCTV FOOTAGE OF LADY FALLING

ANDREW (v.o.)
Yes, because this was the
first and last time anyone
had seen her. When we
questioned people, no one
had seen her before.

PRESENTER
Now, what can you tell us
about that watch we saw by
the body that nobody had
recognised?

CUT TO

STILL IMAGE OF WATCH

ANDREW (v.o)
Well, it is possible that
it belonged to one of the
perpetrators.

PRESENTER
Thank you very much Chief
Inspector.

PRESENTER
So, if you have any
information at all about
  3  
who the two people who
were seen entering the
building, who the
mysterious lady is, who
the watch belongs to, or
the whereabouts of Yad
Gardy please call us on
0800 555 5555. There is a
£10,000 reward for any
information leading to an
arrest.
Thank you.
