    Ep 8: The Tragic Death of Diana, Princess of the People

    On 31 August 1997, Diana died in a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris while the driver was fleeing the paparazzi . The crash also resulted in the deaths of her companion Dodi Fayed and the driver, Henri Paul, who was the acting security manager of the Hotel Ritz in Paris. Trevor Rees-Jones, who was employed as a bodyguard by Dodi's father, survived the crash. The televised funeral, on 6 September, was watched by a British television audience that peaked at 32.10 million, which was one of the United Kingdom's highest viewing figures ever. Millions more watched the event around the world.

    Ep 6: The Somerton Man

    On 1 December 1948 at 6:30 am, the police were contacted after the body of a man was discovered on Somerton Park beach near Glenelg, about 11 km (7 mi) southwest of Adelaide, South Australia. The man was found lying in the sand across from the Crippled Children's Home, which was on the corner of The Esplanade and Bickford Terrace.[9] He was lying back with his head resting against the seawall, with his legs extended and his feet crossed. It was believed the man had died while sleeping.[10] An unlit cigarette was on the right collar of his coat. A search of his pockets revealed some interesting items.
    Join us as we look into the mysterious death of this unnamed man dubbed 'The Somerton Man'.

    Ep 5: O.J Simpson-From Fame to Blame

    Ep 5: O.J Simpson-From Fame to Blame

    PART 2
    On this weeks 2 part episode we delve into the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
    On the evening of Sunday, 12th June 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson, aged 35, was stabbed to death outside her home, along with her friend, 25-year-old restaurant waiter, Ron Goldman. Her body was discovered shortly after midnight on 13th June by a neighbour.
    This was a brutal and frenzied attack which led to O.J Simpson being arrested as the prime suspect in the murders. Evidence found at the scene implicated Simpson as well as evidence in his Ford Bronco and at his house of residence.
    The trial of OJ Simpson would last for 11 months with twist and turns like you could not imagine. Was OJ Simpson, the all American Football legend be capable of committing this horrific murder. The evidence is key in any investigation, and in this case there was a mass of it.
