C4 preps James Bulger murder doc

Channel 4 in the UK has commissioned local production company October Films to make a documentary marking the 25th anniversary of the murder of James Bulger.

The Bulger Murder: 25 Years On (working title, 1×60’) will explore the abduction and murder of the two-year-old by two 10-year-old boys in Liverpool in 1993, asking whether justice was truly served.

It will be directed by Matt Smith (Rio Ferdinand: Being Mum & Dad) and will include interviews with those involved in the case.

Michelle Chappell, commissioning editor for documentaries at C4, said: “James Bulger’s murder shocked the nation and still lingers in the hearts and minds of the British public.

“By bringing together some of the key contributors to the trial and sentencing as well as those reacting to, and in some cases helping shape the public sentiment, this will be a timely and thought-provoking look at how we should deal with horrific crime and the punishment of perpetrators not yet into their teens.”
