The Mind of a Murderer 2: The Mask of Madness
'Kenneth Bianchi is as cold a killer as I have met. The psychological defence is a bunch of hooey.'
Los Angeles Police Department)
'Kenneth Bianchi is a clear-cut multiple personality'. (DR JOHN WATKINS ,
Professor of Psychiatry)
Was Kenneth Bianchi victim of the rare psychological disorder called multiple personality - an illness made famous in the film The Three Faces of Eve? Most of the experts thought so and diagnosed him insane. The police believed the psychiatrists' conclusions were ridiculous.
Part two of The Mind of a Murderer reveals the real mystery of Kenneth Bianchi 's true personality and again, using the videotapes, shows how the remarkable series of interviews threw a new and different light on the case and put psychiatry itself in the dock.

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.
