Series 2 - The Manson Family

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

Charles Manson and his so-called 'family' would become the most infamous killers of the 20th century. Over two bloody nights in August 1969, seven people including actress Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of movie director Roman Polanski, were savagely murdered in their homes.

Their orgy of brutal and seemingly senseless slaughter shocked the world and marked the end of the 1960s hippie dream. But what made Charles Manson the man he was? Why did so many young people fall under his spell and how was he able to convince them so easily to slaughter innocent people without conscience?

Contributors include detectives, attorneys and psychiatrists who tried to unravel the mystery, plus former members of the cult. Were Manson and his 'family' born to kill?

    It doesnt matter the way someone has been brought up.If they are going to kill people its there decision and its going to happen eventually if they decide to be like that.You cant blame childhood if you want to murder people.!!

    This really is an awful service, buffering, stopping. Come on C5 sort out your technology. This is an unacceptable. Surely you can use better technology than this?I've been trying to watch this program on and off for 9 hours now. Never again.

    awful site. Only one that doesn't work. Very annoying as really wanted to see Manson I started watching live. SORT IT OUT... It is 1.17 a.m. so no 'peak time' excuses. Embarrasing for you.

    I have tried three times to watch this episode but the video keeps crashing, usually during the second advertisements. I have not had this problem with any other TV channel website. Please sort this c**p out!

    Im am shocked and really upset from this programme, its horrific. I will never understand how this sort of thing happens and there is no excuse for killing someone, absolutely sick, twisted people. I hope they all rot in jail. Literally terrified after watching this.
