The Confession Tapes (Netflix) – Premieres 8th September
A docu-series that looks into various criminal cases where the convictions have been based on apparent forced confessions.
In the episode the show recaps the sequence of events that led to the crime, then with interviews with police officers, members of the defence and their family and friends goes through what happened during the time leading to the conviction.
Along with the interviews, the programme shows the actual police interview tapes as well as archive recording of those suspects involved. Where they recount how they ended up admitting guilt to crimes they said they were innocent to.
As a crime docu-series it’s a bit like a condensed version of shows like Making A Murderer, and worth a watch if you’re into that sort of thing.
