Sensational

True journalism. Well researched and presented WITHOUT bias. As journalism used to be B4 opinion took the place of facts.

Gripping and balanced

I’ve hugely enjoyed listening to this series. Quality investigative journalism told in a fascinating, humanistic and accessible way. Hoping for more from this team.

Best BBC podcast

Totally gripped by this story. Great interviews telling a fascinating and unbelievable story. I really hope there’s a follow up to this podcast - whether it’s more on the murders or a different sporting legend.
