I notice you put NZ as your country. Did you watch the docudrama in
the UK or did it get shown in other countries (NZ) also?

I am ammazed that your nine year old sat through it. I got bored and
switched over. However even I found the stuff amazing at times but have
decided that I would rather 'judge for myself' (to coin a McSpotlight phrase) by reading some of the transcripts etc than by being influenced by a dramatisation which was obviously played the characters for entertainment rather accuracy.
