: Horizon

The Mind of a Murderer
1: The Case of the Hillside Strangler For the first time court-ordered videotapes allow a television audience to watch a mass murderer while psychiatrists, appointed to assess his sanity, interview him in prison. This remarkable television event provides an extraordinary portrait of a mass killer, Kenneth Bianchi , the American counterpart of the Yorkshire Ripper.
An all-American boy and doting father, BIANCHI strangled 12 young women, yet had no memory of the crimes.
The videotapes show how the psychiatrists discovered an astonishing 'dual personality'; Bianchi appeared to be a true 'Jekyll and Hyde', with two quite different personalities in the same body. He was diagnosed insane. Then, with the arrival of Dr Martin Orne , doubts began to creep in ... was Bianchi genuine or somehow managing to fool eminent psychiatrists? This film provides a rare portrait of a deranged mind, and raises basic questions about the criminal personality and the role of psychiatrists in court.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
