As part of Channel 4’s renowned Secret History strand, and marking the 50th anniversary of the creation of the Metropolitan Police Service’s specialist firearms command unit, SCO19, Maroon Productions presents ‘Secrets of a Police Marksman’.

Tony Long is the most prolific police marksman Britain has ever seen. Deployed on hundreds of dangerous operations to bring down terrorists, killers and hostage takers, he has been behind some of the UK’s most controversial police shootings. But it was the death of a suspected armed robber and drug dealer, Azelle Rodney, that landed him in court for murder and brought his storied career to a devastating end.
