This is an excellent series of well-known and not so well-known crimes (mainly murder) of the 20th century. Each segment is quite concise, however, the wealth of contemporaneous film and tv footage available is fascinating. It was so good I immediately purchased series 2. If anyone knows of a series 3 I'd buy that too!

Unlike the previous poster, I don't think there's anything wrong with the A/V in this set at all. They're hardly going to bother remastering something like this anyway, especially seeing as each episode is told through the use of old archival footage.

A detailed and compact series, with the dulcit tones of Robert Powell providing the narration. But whatever happened to the release of Series 2?

This is a good series but 2 titles that I have on VHS are missing. These are the JFK assassination and Bonnie & Clyde which are two excellent episodes, and one of the reasons I purchased the series. Therefore this series is not complete. The episodes concerned are not in the second series either. Poor very Poor NMP. However there is enough murder,blood,guts and weirdos for even the average punter.
