As it's written by him I guess it is largely accurate but was he really reporting live at the time considering he was the programmes main anchor?
Here's to the next 20 ye.....

I seem to recall reading somewhere that the tip off that Cooper had appeared on Bullseye didn't come about in the way it was presented, but the episode he appeared on had been repeated and that was when somebody spotted the likeness. But of course the Bullseye thing isn't the main drive of the entire affair, but it just goes to show if you do commit homicide, don't go on a gameshow years later, especially one that ends up being repeated ad-nauseam decades later Smile

...
I imagine any would be murderers will be avoiding shows like The Chase or Tipping Point from on!


Actually I'm sure there are other examples of people who were caught because they appeared on a TV show. Surely the John Cooper murders can't be the only time in 70 years worth of TV around the world where that happened? It's the sort of thing that has to have happened in America at least, surely?

Think there was a murderer who appeared on the US equivalent of Blind Date but I don't think he was caught because of it.

Marcella airing on a Tuesday quite interesting as well - think it is quite some time since they had a weekly drama there - usually it's a strong BBC1 slot.

A more traditional schedule for the next few weeks with weekly dramas and programming after much of 2020 saw shows stripped weekly, which seems to be their favoured approach and I think with short series like the Pembrokeshire Murders helps keep momentum across the week.


Watched ep1 of the Pembrokeshire Murders last night. Interesting they used real footage of BBC Crimewatch. I'm always amused that TV drama doesn't get the detail of TV production right. There was a live interview on ITV Wales Tonight, it was Nov 2006, and they'd gone to the trouble of having the actors wearing poppies, however the interview on a cliff top was in daylight, and no SNG truck to be seen. Just saying


The casting of David Flynn as ITV Wales' Jonathan Hill is spot on though. The drama is actually based on Jonathan's book I believe.


Just watched ep2. The scenes inside 'HTV' studios look like they were shot at BBC Llandaff?

Looked like the long corridor at the front of the building, and distintive 2000s and 1960s BBC style signage

Not a murderer, but a few years ago Ant & Dec did a surprise (I think) wedding for a couple which included some unaware guests, one of whom was attending with his Other Woman. Needless to say he looked the most surprised of all when the wall opened up and he found himself on live TV.

Nearly. He appeared on the show with his second wife, but he was still married to his first. He was subsequently jailed for bigamy.

Not an on air one, but the Soham killer helped park up the news satellite trucks when the girls' disappearance was covered.
As he was the caretaker of the school, that was something he would have done.
He obviously later was interviewed on air, as many people who are later convicted are.

No actual adverts shown so far during catchphrase. Only seems to be trailers for upcoming ITV programmes.

Pretty much the normal in the 6pm hour at the weekend (and largely ad free in the week too). Interestingly they also filled half of one ad break with a behind the scenes ITV Creates film.
