Macabre anniversary aside, the angle for this ITV hour is the release of new insights into the Moors Murders garnered from Hindley’s letters and tapes (sent to writer Duncan Staff) which tell her version of events. This gives her a surprising amount of narrative control over the programme.
Hearing her surprisingly posh, well-to-do voice from beyond the grave is a stark reminder of her humanity, as is her description of feeling ‘beyond redemption’ after the second killing. A fascinating and fresh insight into an event in modern British history that continues to haunt us.
