This well-organized introduction discusses the nuts and bolts of how trials work, and also explores the system's Constitutional underpinnings and ancient history (in trial by combat, oath, or ordeal).

As the camera prowls a modern court, clear narration explains qualifications for service, how jurors are chosen (and challenged), who’s who in the courtroom, the sequence of events in a typical trial, and how panels deliberate to reach a verdict. Civil trials are distinguished from criminal trials, and petit juries from grand juries. Legal vocabulary is helpfully spelled out in onscreen titles, and segment titles provide stopping points between the program’s main topics.
