Waco: Madman or Messiah (A&E) – Premieres 28th January – Miniseries
A documentary about the Waco siege, where it talks to the agents involved in planning and executing the operation, along with a couple of the survivors where they explain what happened inside the complex.
The programme starts off with the survivors making their first visit back to the compound since the siege happened. Where they talk about what it was like to live there and what they thought of David Koresh. At the same time the programme goes into detail about how the cult of Davidian started and the backstory of Koresh.
As it goes on the programme introduces the agents involved in initially monitoring then taking part in the siege. Where along with archival footage of the operation the agents explain, why they were interested in the cult and how they believed the operation went awry.
While it’s a bit slow going it’s an interesting enough bit of viewing.
