Series 1 - Myra Hindley

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.1.0 or greater is installed.

In 1966, the terrible crimes committed by Myra Hindley and her boyfriend Ian Brady shocked the nation and became the benchmark by which other acts of evil came to be measured.

The young couple Hindley and Bradey viciously assaulted and murdered five young children, burying four on Saddleworth Moor near Manchester. Known as the Moors Murderers, Hindley and Brady would become the most hated people in Britain.

Why did this young woman with a previously unblemished past commit such evil acts? Was Hindley the victim of a manipulating Brady or was she simply a complicit partner in a disturbing game of death and destruction?

    It beggars belief that people are still making excuses for Myra. She was born evil and needs to excuses. No woman with a heart could stand by and allow children to be brutally killed

    I think whilst what she did was wrong, she became a political prisoner as no Government would risk letting her out due to publish backlash. they would have fell from power. that was wrong, she served her tariff. it was not the governments place to intervene in judicial processes.

    i did a case study on this for a gcse and realized that not only was Myra hindley and Ian Brady were not only psychopaths but to murder young children there was something seriously disturbing about them. they lured them under false protentions and then murdered them but carried on with the their lives as if nothing happened whilst families were grieving or looking for their children, to me that is sick and wrong i am pleased that they're both locked up for the rest of their lives or if they do get out people will still judge them for what they did to innocent young children.

    To the people commenting offensively on Myra; I ask you to take atleast a little thought to the fact that if she felt no sympathy she may have had some psychopathic tendencies, there for it would have been incredibly hard to feel remorse. That would not be her fault, the condition of a 'psychopath' is not evil, it is something many people have. I am not ignorant to your reasons for your hatred towards her, I am not making excuses for her, but I am providing explanations. You would not insult Winnie Johnson, so please do not insult Myra. she had endured many insufferable years in prison, taking many beatings while inside, grew increasingly depressed to the point where she nearly took her own life. She has suffered enough. Stop these comments, you may not be insulting her as she is dead, but this insults me, I find it somewhat offensive as I'm sure others do too.

    i can understand why people get so upset with the site, in the time it has taken to read all the previous comments, type my own AND proof read it, nothing has happened not even a pop up saying "this video is currently unavailable". But thats no reason to get angry, its free entertainment and its good entertainment (when it works). so ill leave a worthwhile comment, trial and error! and in this moment in time channel 5 judging from the last 4 months of comments, all trials have led to further error! please listen to your viewers or at least dignify us with an explaination as to why most of your videos simply dont work and fix it, your losing alot of eyes on screens to better sites

    I would just like to say to all these people that think it is a shame that Brady is still alive, I think it is hillarious. That evil man wants out of this world and away from the awful crimes he commited so badly he wants the RIGHT to die?! He does not have a right to ANYTHING let alone dieing. Keep him alive as long as humanly possible. THAT is torture to this sick and twisted man. And as for trying to say Myra Hindley went along with Brady? That she wouldn't have commited these crimes if she hadn't met Brady? Don't believe it. She was born to kill end of. She was just a coward in that she couldn't stand on her own two feet and do it. She hid behind a man, thinking she would be let off light. Now she, I AM glad is dead as she wanted out of prison and to continue on her life as if nothing happened / she had no part in it.

    In Channel 5's defence I would like to say that I have found the entire series of Born to Kill absolutely facinating and well made. Thanks C5.

    Im glad Brady is still alive.... he's in absolute torture all he wants is to die...so keep him in a tortured, miserable, forcefed exisitence for as long as possible! Im sure that the recent letter which claimed would give Winnie Johnston some rest ( to be opened after his death) was just a ploy to stop the force feeding. I hope they find Keith and his family can find peace x

    would love to watch this but once again I can't. Why offer this service when it seldom works and when it does it either is out of time with the actors words or goes on a go-slow at the important bit. And no, it isn't my broadband as we have the fastest there is

    Im absolutly discusted and angry on behalf of ....well everyone How disrepectful to all those poor children and famililes that have had THAT to deal with! i will not speak there scumbag names or mention there outragous crimes as they want everyone to remember who they are and what they did, the monsters need to be forgotten! I think we should remember those 5 children and their famililes! r.i.p to the victims and my respects to all the victims family members my thoughts are with you. Channel 5 need to make a larger public apology as far as im concerened, not just an announcement on channel 5 plus 1! Its like the announcement was never made. I am extremly offened and angry! WELL DONE CHANNEL 5 for getting peoples hopes up!

    That's a photo of Beverley Allitt not Hindley. Who's running this channel, an ape? I think Hindley had a male mind, no woman could treat a child like that.

    Not the full picture on why she did the things she did, the first scream of a child would have been the last if she had not been born to kill. Ian Brady considers and calls the experts that deal with him complete idiots. If we continue to find excuses for these types of people, he would be right and our children will be at great risk.

    As everyone else has stated unfortunately Brady is still alive and as for Hindley going along with him what a load of rubbish she was an intelligent woman who knew exactly what she was doing she was as evil as him. She played the innocent later to get out of prison
