The Radical Story of Patty Hearst (CNN) – Premieres 11th February – Miniseries
A documentary that looks into the story of Patty Hearst, the daughter of one of the richest families in the US, who was kidnapped by the Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) and then ended up joining them.
Though neither Patty or her family were interviewed, the programme talks to her fiancé about her early life and the relationship before the kidnapping. Then the programme interviews attornies, authors and a member of the SLA about the group formation and how they ended up deciding on the kidnapping plot.
As documentaries go it’s an interesting watch.
