The Railway Murders
Presented by Nick Ross
In 1986 Crimewatch made appeals on three separate murders. Now with special access to police records
Crimewatch File reconstructs the inside story of a major police investigation. Between December 1985 and May 1986 three young women - Alison Day , Maartje Tamboezer and Anne Lock - were raped and murdered.
At first the cases seemed quite separate, but definite links soon emerged. Then police discovered another connection - to 27 rapes in North London.
The investigation involved four police forces and over a million hours of inquiries, until tiny but crucial clues took them to the home of a 28-year-old unemployed carpenter from Kilburn.

The final programme
Featured tonight is the women's 3,000 metres final, an event which will be remembered for one controversial moment involving America's Mary Decker and Britain's
Zola Budd ; the phenomenal Carl Lewis attempting to equal
Jesse Owens 's record of four gold medals in separate track and field events; and the stirring closing ceremonies, celebrating 16 days of athletic endeavour in Los
Angeles and anticipating the event the world awaits this summer - the 24th Olympic Games in Seoul.

In this special edition the cameras reveal what goes on behind the headlines during a real take-over battle.
For over a year the BBC had unique access to Wordplex, a British manufacturer of word processors, as it fell prey to three attempts to take it over. The story started in May 1987 when hi-tech troubleshooter Dr Geoff Bristow was sent in to save Wordplex from bankruptcy. But when his strategy failed to go through as planned, Wordplex soon found themselves facing the future under another owner. Narrator Fred Emery
