Imagine being condemned to death for murder, when even the prosecutors admit that you didn’t actually kill anyone.

This is what happened to Richard Glossip, a death-row inmate who was found guilty of murdering motel owner, Barry van Treese.

Despite being convicted on the word of the actual self-confessed killer, the state of Oklahoma is still intent on executing him, raising international outcry and controversy.

Ian Woods, a reporter for Sky News and former BBC East Midlands presenter, has tirelessly campaigned to bring the injustices Glossip has faced to the world’s attention.

He even served as an invited witness to Glossip’s three scheduled executions – all of which were stayed at the last possible moment. Surviving Execution is the gripping true story of the case, written by a man with unparalleled first-hand knowledge and access.

Ian has been friends with Neil White for 35 years and the two will be in conversation about the Glossip case at Déda on Sunday 3 June at 11.30 am.
