Series 1 - The Angel Of Death

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

The apparently caring nurse Beverely Allitt had only just joined the staff of Children's Ward 4 of Grantham Hospital when a substantial rise in young patient deaths began occurring.

At first, no one could explain why children, some as young as six months, were arriving on the ward with only minor health problems, but leaving only days later dead.

A shocked and seemingly uncomprehending public would eventually be informed the culprit was actually the very person who was meant to be caring for the children. During her 59 day stint as a nurse, 23-year-old Beverly Allitt, nicknamed The Angel of Death, attacked thirteen children, killing four.

From a very early age, Allitt was known to be an attention seeker. Was her desire to be the centre of attention really the reason why she attacked such innocent children or was something far more psychologically disturbing the cause for this evil?

    I think people need to get a life and stop complaining about the on demand service. I've been watching the Born To Kill series pretty much back to back for the past week and I've only encountered a couple of problems. Not enough for it to make me moan about it in a comment which is pretty much read only by other watchers and a moderator who doesn't care what your gripe is. I've actually found that by clearing out your cache helps the streaming of the next show. As the adverts cache in your system, I think it may get confused. I love this series and I'm becoming a fast fan of the channel 5 documentary genre. HI5 Channel 5 :) hahahaha

    Here's an idea people..why not watch the show at time of broadcast, or if you're elsewhere, RECORD IT! Don't criticize Channel 5 over something beyond their control. The 'something' being the fact that you bought lousy equipment! How about commenting on the SHOW? It was a well made & incisive documentary about a damaged & wicked young woman. Well done!

    Channel 5 On Demand are being rather clever in their approach with the more popular programmes aired. They build up suspense and anticipation which leads to them being even more popular overall. The player is a joke. The service overall scores 10 out of 10 for its complete uselessness. I don't believe any of the numerous, and never ending, complaints make a blind bit of difference because if they did improvements would have taken place a long time ago. Overall the service gets much poorer as time goes by.

    constantly freezing. This does not happen with other channels or the ads. Really dissapointing for an "on demand" service

    Well, Sidrup, don't you think the fact that everyone else is having problems viewing loads of programmes on the Channel 5 website might indicate that there is a problem?! Also, computers have nothing to do with streaming speed!

    can't understand why all the negative comments about this programme not working when in fact it works perfectly fine maybe they people should invest in a better computer since this website and the programme's on it work perfectly well. PS BUY A BETTER COMPUTER

    So it's not just me who has experienced the same problems with unstable play-back. This seems to be a common problem with Demand 5. Channel 5 really does need to get its finger out and sort this out.

    Why does this continually freeze every few seconds? lts impossible to watch anything. ln this day and age you should have the technology to be able to show programmes with mo freeze. Also how come the adverts never freeze? When are you going to stop ignoring viewers comments and demands for action to be taken?

    Unfortunately, the "Tissue Act 2004" would have meant Allitt would have "got away with it"! There would not have been ANY blood samples to analyse. Let's hope that she was the first and the last.

    eventually worked, but stopped every so often, i found pausing it for a while, then pressing play again made it run longer. i tested on other demand programmes and you tube and this didn't happen, so its not my flash-player or connection, unique to this programme. must just be streaming really slow.

    Adverts play; programme freezes. Seems to be unique to this service. The captcha words are also illegible.

    At long last Born To Kill is ready !! What took you so long. Its been four days!! Far to long if you ask me. Also please ditch the ad break at the start and just cut straight to the program I find the ads so annoying. The less ads the better!

    I think the word DEMAND sould be changed to 'HOPE' . You don't have that many shows I wish to watch. The ones that I do take far too long to show., if I am lucky enough to see the programme, I have just hope it doesn't freeze...get a grip channel five....this is becoming a joke

    Please can you put this on as I know of someone who appears to have traits of Munchausen by internet and would really like to watch a programme that will obviously be related to this syndrome. Thank you.

    8 HOURS after broadcast & this is still not available!! What is the point of having "DEMAND 5" - ITS NOT ON DEMAND COS IT TAKES HOURS FOR PROGRAMMES TO BE AVAILABLE!! May as well just wait for the repeat of this (channel 5 seem to be even more frequent than the BBC with repeating the same old stuff which is a feat) Wont be bothering with demand 5 no more - it seems to work as long as u dont "DEMAND" & are willing to wait 48 hours+ to see a programme- This comment wil poss. be removed but hey ho!!
