Sir Trevor McDonald presents the story of how justice finally caught up with double murderer Russell Bishop, 32 years after his harrowing crimes.
Using first hand testimonies from relatives and police footage, the documentary takes us back to 1986, the day the investigation began with Karen Hadaway and Nicola Fellows being reported missing, to the discovery of their bodies and the arrest and failed first prosecution of suspect Russell Bishop. It highlights police frustration from how administrative blunders by the prosecution had let a child killer go free, to forensic advances and a one-in-a-billion DNA match linking Bishop to the murders several years later, resulting in a retrial and subsequent sentencing.
