When the wind blows shows us how insignificant we are in th uk if it ever came to a nuclear war . we are toast . Trident is another waste of money that could be better spent on the nhs .

Just watched 6 part documentary series called "The Jinx - the lives and deaths of Robert Durst".

Stunning piece of film making based around the backstory of, and an interview with, proper insane billionaire and suspect in 3 murders (his wife, friend and neighbour) Robert Durst. The interview parts are riveting.

He was actually convicted of dismembering the body of his neighbour, but not the murder, as his scumbag defence lawyers got him off on a plea of self defence. The final scenes where after the interview he goes into a bathroom unaware that his mic is still on are chilling...

Like you I saw the trailer and liked the concept as an idea - I believe it is based on a book by Len Deighton ?

Was really disappointed with it, didn't hold my attention at all and doubt I will be watching further episodes

The book was good-ish, but struggled to live up to the brilliant concept tbh. Saw the trailer and instantly decided I will never watch this. :roll:
