My notes on the real cases that inspired this episode of Garrow’s Law is online now here at the BBC website.
In addition to the details, if you want to see Captain Baillie’s original pamplet, it’s online here
The speech that Garrow made in the Baillie case was in fact made by Thomas Erskine. To read Erskine’s speech in full, click here. In particular, scroll down to page 30 to see the bit about Lord Sandwich, that was so outrageous that it was blanked out!!
