S01E11 - Special (Part 1) - "The Moors Murderers" Ian Brady and Myra Hindley


In the Season 1 special of British Murders, I tell the story of British murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley, aka "The Moors Murderers".

 

Brady and Hindley sexually assaulted and killed five children between 1963 and 1965. They both received multiple life sentences before passing away in 2002 (Hindley) and 2017 (Brady).

 

In the first episode of this 2 part special, we'll be focusing on the early life and background of the deadly couple.

 

We'll also explore the build-up and execution of their very first murder.

 

Next week, we'll focus on how the couple carried out the rest of their killing spree before being captured in late 1965.
