What happens when a Quaker and a Methodist Reverend break into a secure weapons factory to cause billions of pounds worth of criminal damage?

Anti-arms and peace activists Sam Walton and Samuel ‘Woody’ Woodhouse attempted to disarm state-of-the-art eurofighter typhoon jets that were being sold to Saudi Arabia to be used in the Yemen Civil War.

After being caught in the act, arrested and charged with criminal damage, the pair expected to go to jail for up to 10 years. But, extraordinarily, the judge found them both not guilty. This is their story.

Using intimate interviews, documents and objects, ‘Investigators’ relives shocking and fearless crime stories through the eyes of those involved.
