    I wonder if this is Tracey again? If so, how interesting that it's on Channel 4 this time instead of ITV.....

    Police believe Karr comitted the crime with an accomplice?

    Sound familiar? Can't pin the crime on the "suspect", because of the DNA, handwriting, and oh yes, he was not in Colorado.....so natch an "unnamed accomplice".....

    Default all those e-mails

    There are a bunch of e-mails to Tracey and even phone calls and I saw no mention of an accomplice - maybe it would have to be Tracey. Just kidding, of course.

    Synopsis of documentary from mydigiguide.com:-

    On 26 December 1996, six-year-old beauty queen JonBenét Ramsey was found dead in her parents' basement in Boulder, Colorado. The nation became obsessed with the case and media attention was feverish, but no suspect was charged, and both the media and the nation's suspicion fell unfairly on the victim's parents.

    I'll pick up the tv guides later and report what they say.

    OK guys, I bought the two main tv guides - Radio Times and TV Times. These are weekly magazines which preview programmes and include the tv listings for the next week.

    The documentary is produced by Michael Chrisman and David Mills - no mention of Michael Tracey. However, Michael Chrisman was involved in the Gigax documentary.

    Now get this. The documentary gets NO mention in either of the tv guides apart from the tv listing itself. The other documentaries all had additional write-ups in the tv guides (which are magazines). Any programme which is worth watching gets an additional write-up.

    Nor does either tv guide give the documentary a recommended viewing tag.

    As I said before, I think it is very interesting that this documentary is showing on Channel 4 instead of ITV like the previous docs.

    ETA - the Radio Times doesn't just have one "recommended choice" per channel per evening. They flag up all programmes they consider worth viewing. The JonBenet - an Evil Twist documentary is clearly just not recommended viewing.

    Well, I guess in this case, since Karr was an INTERNATIONAL faux pas that ended with egg dripping off the faces of Lacy and Tracey, maybe the critics in your broadcast area noticed that the stupid CROC 4 is as absurd as we think it is.

    "University of Colorado Law Professor Paul Campos declared the letter a 'reckless exoneration.' He went on to state, 'Everyone knows that relative immunity from criminal conviction is something money can buy.
    Apparently another thing it can buy is an apology for even being suspected of a crime you probably already would have been convicted of committing if you happened to be poor.'"

    I don't think this documentary is about Gigax. I think Karr will be mentioned and it sounds as if they will repeat older stuff about the media and the Ramseys.

    I'll record it and watch it carefully. If it's biased or misleading, I'll consider complaining to Ofcom.

    I wonder if Maills and Tracey have parted company? Note this blurb about David Mills:-


    David Mills
    After leaving the London School of Economics with a degree in economics and sociology he worked as a newspaper journalist before joining the BBC as a current affairs producer.
    In l979 he moved to Granada’s ‘World in Action’ for whom he made over 60 programmes, He specialised on education, health and the economy.
    Since 1994 he has worked as an independent producer making documentaries for Channel 4, the BBC and ITV. In 1998 he and Clare Mills made the Channel 4 documentary on early years education “Too Much Too Early”.
    He is Secretary of the Campaign for Quality Television and as such one of a group of producers campaigning to maintain traditional “public service” values in broadcasting.

    The Gigax fiasco must have indeed been a great embarassment to Mills - "Quality Television"? A documentary full of misleading statements and outright lies?

    I shall indeed be watching the next documentary with great interest to see if Mr Mills has learned any lessons. I do hope he sticks to the Ofcom Code of Practice this time. If he is going to mention the fact that the media were critical of the Ramseys, I hope he also states why. Not one of his British documentaries to date has mentioned the Ramseys' lack of co-operation. That could be construed as bias - something which is a breach of Ofcom's code of practice.

    One of the other Brits at Websleuths found an article in one of the other TV guides (there are a dozen or more):-

    This really better not be another misleading endeavour by these Producers.

    If they omit certain important facts ... like the fact that some of the "details" Karr came out with in his e-mails were freely available on the Internet... or the FACT that the DNA might not the the killers .... then I will have to complain to Ofcom. I really will have had enough.

    Hi Jayelles, What does 'this one-off documentary' mean in the UK? One of a kind?
