Louis, Martin and Michael

After losing out to Martin Bashir for an opportunity to produce an official Michael Jackson documentary, Louis Theroux tries his best to obtain an interview with Michael, but cannot. In the process, we get to see Louis meet with Uri Geller and Michael’s father Joseph Jackson. Louis had to pay $5000 to interview Michael’s father. The fee was negotiated through a person named Majestik Magnificent, who claims to be Michael Jackson’s (and, previously, Muhammad Ali’s) personal magician. Majestik participates in the second of two interviews, often prompting Mr. Jackson or interrupting Louis’ questions. Majestik’s fee for securing the interview with Joseph was $500.

Louis comments about Michael during the interview to Joseph “He is so much in the public eye, I don’t think he has very much left for himself.”

Joe Jackson confessed in the documentary to often beating Michael Jackson.

Hitler’s Private World

When Adolf Hitler bought Eva Braun a movie camera, to film the people and parties which occurred at their Bavarian retreat, the technology to include synchronized sound had not yet been developed.

So when soldiers discovered Hitler’s private home movies, in the Berlin bunker where the Nazi leader took his own life, the tantalizing clips they unearthed, featuring leading members of the SS in a more relaxed mode, remained silent for 60 years.

Now, leading edge lip reading software has enabled German experts to re-voice these films and provide us with a chilling insight into Hitlers private world.

Being Different

A tribute to the spirit and humanity of people who are physically different from the average: very tall and very large men and women, a bearded woman and her long-time husband, Siamese twins joined at the midsection, and several little people including actor Billy Barty.

We meet some at Gibsonton, Florida, where carnival folk winter. They talk about their lives and accomplishments. The camera also goes on the road to visit a grandfather with a distinctive face, a legless mechanic from Kentucky on a second honeymoon in LA, a marathon runner and motivational speaker who has no feet, a karate student with partial limbs, and an armless, down-to-earth mom in Texas.

A Film by Harry Rasky (Canadian documentary film producer, died 2007). Broadcast 1981.

Horizon: Miracle Cure? A Decade of the Human Genome

A decade ago, scientists announced that they had produced the first draft of the human genome, the 3.6 billion letters of our genetic code. It was seen as one of the greatest scientific achievements of our age, a breakthrough that would usher in a new age of medicine.

A decade later, Horizon finds out how close we are to developing the life-changing treatments that were hoped for.

Horizon follows three people, each with a genetic disease, as they go behind the scenes at some of Britain’s leading research labs to find out what the sequencing of the human genome has done for them – and the hope this remarkable project offers all of us.

The Cromwell Street Killings

Rosemary and her husband Fred West, were accused of murdering 10 female victims over a 20 year period ending in 1987. They took great joy in luring away vulnerable runaways with offers of rides, lodging or jobs as nannies. Once in their clutches inside the “House of Horrors”, these young women were stripped, bound with tape, raped, tortured, then killed. Some were later dismembered and buried. The killer couple was arrested at their home at 25 Cromwell Street, Gloucester, in 1994.

Police, armed with a search warrant, dug up the remains of their 16 year old daughter, Heather, who vanished in 1987. Further excavations under the house and in garden produced eight more bodies. One more body and Rosemary’s stepdaughter, Charmaine were later found under the kitchen of a former home at 25 Midland Road, Gloucester.

Fred hanged himself in Winston Green prison in Birmingham, on New Years Day in 1995. He faced two further charges of murdering his ex wife and a baby-sitter and burying them in fields near his former home. Police believe that Fred probably killed more women. Rosemary, who admitted being a prostitute, still maintains her innocence. However on 22nd November 1995, she was convicted of 10 murders. The authorities are investigating the whereabouts of nine other missing women who frequented their home.

The judge, Mr Justice Mantell, sentenced her to life imprisonment, saying: “If attention is paid to what I think, you will never be released.”

The Lord Chief Justice later decided that West should spend at least 25 years in prison, but in July in 1997 Home Secretary Jack Straw subjected West to a whole life tariff.

October 1996 the house at 25 Cromwell Street, along with the house next door, 23 Cromwell Street, were demolished and the site made into a garden and pathway. Every brick was crushed and every timber was burnt to discourage souvenir hunters.

27th September 2001 – A documentary filmmaker has called for an investigation into claims that serial killer Fred West may have murdered 20 more people. David Monaghan said West confessed the additional murders to a social worker assigned to him in prison and repeated them in a yet unaired TV show. Gloucestershire police said there was not enough evidence to investigate the claims and are trying to block the airing of the interview.

Rose West has abandoned plans to appeal against her conviction for her part in the Cromwell Street murders. West, still maintains her innocence but said she was ready to spend the rest of her life in prison.
West’s solicitor expressed surprise at the decision but her brother Andrew Letts said he was relieved she would never be free.

October 2008, Rose West moved from HMP Bronzefield, in Ashford, to HMP Durham.
