2016 marked the 25th anniversary of a crime spree which at first baffled and then profoundly shocked BritainÕs Medical community. Four children were murdered, others with routine medical conditions were left fighting for their lives. Using exclusive access to eight hours of interviews, testimony from leading Police investigators and dramatic reconstructions of real-life events, this programme will tell the chilling story of Nurse Beverley Allitt.
Over three months at a general hospital in Oxfordshire England two patients had died and a further fifteen had become serious inexplicably gravely ill for conditions they should not have been suffering from. A staff Nurse was on duty each time, one who revelled in the thrill of trying to revive the patients. Drawing on testimony from leading investigators, using dramatic reconstructions of real-life events, this programme will tell the unsettling story of Nurse Benjamin Geen. As we also hear from those who still believe him innocent, we uncover the complexities facing detectives even when they are certain they have captured a Nurse who kills.
Drawing on court reports, evidence uncovered, recollections of those involved and using dramatic reconstructions of real life events, this program will tell the story of Nurse Genene Jones. Whilst she was on duty children began inexplicably dying on wards, ten times as many deaths occurred on the wards patrolled by Nurse Genene Jones. But Tested blood samples could only reveal so much., something that Genene Jones knew all about. How many children were killed? That is the question, which is still decades on, untested in court, the truth behind what happened in two Texas medical units in 1982, remains a secret that Genene Jones alone knows.
Daniella Poggiali is the ward joker Ð playing pranks, fooling around Ð but she has an unfortunate habit of being on the scene when patient after patient dies. Is Daniella Poggiali the Prima Donna holding centre stage long enough to murder those she cares for? Or is she the misunderstood extrovert with a strange way of amusing herself? Drawing on Court reports, evidence uncovered, recollections of those involved and using dramatic reconstructions of real-life events, this programme will tell the story of Nurse Daniella Poggiali. All Italy wants to know Ð is she a Nurse who Kills? And if she is, how many times?
Stephan Letter Ð was superficially a model German nurse. Using dramatic reconstructions of real-life events, this programme will ask, Is Stephan Letter responsible for the murder of dozens on wards at Sonthofen hospital in Germany? He is either a deeply damaged man who needs to be treated, or he is GermanyÕs worst mass murder since 1945, killing at least 28 vulnerable, elderly patients...which is it? No one denies, he was very good at his job.
In 2012 jurors at a courtroom in Texas were asked to find Nurse Kimberly Saenz guilty or not guilty of murder. It had been alleged that she had targeted not just vulnerable dialysis patients Ð but had cynically used the very equipment they relied on to live as a murder weapon. Small-town America was in shockÉ could it be true. Was one of their own Ð a Nurse from Lufkin, a serial killer? Using exclusive access to Police interviews, testimony from investigators and dramatic reconstructions of real-life events, this programme will tell the chilling story of Nurse Kimberly Saenz.
