Plot Synopsis

Each one-hour episode of KILLING HOUR chronicles the story of a different high profile and shocking murder. In forensic detail, each episode charts the last days leading up to these horrific killings from the perspective of both murderer and victim. The series features exclusive access to personal testimony from witnesses who have never before spoken publicly, together with expert commentary from criminologists, detectives, pathologists and journalists. Subjects include: Jeremy Bamber, who was responsible for one of Britain's most notorious killings when he shot his mother, father, sister, Sheila Cafell and her five-year-old twins at the family farm -- and blamed it on his sister (in "The Bambi Massacre" episode, which previously aired as the "Slaughter at the Farm" episode of COUNTDOWN TO MURDER); a killer who tried to incinerate and destroy everything which could link him to his crime, but inadvertently created new forensic evidence that came to light with a technique never before used in a criminal investigation (in the "Wood-be Killer" episode which also aired as an episode of FORENSIC FILES); and many more murderers.
