Broadmoor: Serial Killers and High Security

Wednesday 26th May, 2021 at 9PM on Channel 5
Broadmoor Hospital is home to around 200 of Britain’s most dangerous men and this is the story of the lives behind bars of five of its most notorious inhabitants: “Yorkshire Ripper” Peter Sutcliffe, Ronnie Kray, Robert Napper, “Hannibal the Cannibal” Robert Maudsley and “Britain’s most violent prisoner” Charles Bronson. These infamous criminals tell their stories in their own words through letters and phone calls.

Also featured are those who worked with Broadmoor’s patients, some of whom are speaking for the first time: ‘They’ve done monstrous things but that’s not the same thing as them being a monster’. These include world leaders in forensic psychology, all of whom have worked within Broadmoor’s walls; Dr Jackie Craissati MBE, Professor Pamela Taylor and Dr Sohom Das. Plus patients’ friends, biographers and criminologists.
