Based on the real-life British Post Office scandal, the events portrayed in this new four-part series from Masterpiece set off a firestorm of public outrage forcing the Prime Minister to act.

Following one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in British legal history, “Mr Bates vs The Post Office” was created with direct input from the innocent – and indomitable – people caught up in it.

When money started to seemingly disappear from its local branches, the government-owned Post Office wrongly blamed their own managers for its apparent loss. For more than a decade, hundreds were accused of theft and fraud, and many were even sent to prison – leaving lives, marriages, and reputations in ruins.

But the issue was actually caused by errors in the Post Office’s own computer system, something it denied for years.

Revealing a shocking David vs. Goliath fight for justice, this is the story of the decent, ordinary people who were relentlessly pursued, coerced, and controlled by a powerful corporation, and their ongoing battle against seemingly insurmountable odds to right so many horrific wrongs.

Binge all four episodes of this series starting on the night of its broadcast premiere with Arizona PBS Passport.
