Series 2 - Episode 1: Levi Bellfield

To view this page ensure that Adobe Flash Player version 10.0.0 or greater is installed.

This week, Professor Wilson investigates Levi Bellfield. Infamous for the murder of 13-year-old Milly Dowler, Bellfield is one of the UK's most notorious serial killers. As well as Milly's murder, he was convicted of the brutal murders of French student Amelie Delagrange and Marsha McDonnell, whom he killed with series of hammer blows to the head, and the attempted murder of Kate Sheedy, whom he ran down with his car in Twickenham as she walked home from a night out.

However, linking Bellfield to further crimes proves to be one of the most complicated cases that Professor Wilson has ever studied. Bellfield had multiple signatures and seemed to be on a mission to destroy young women in anyway that he could. He hated blondes and prowled for victims on streets that he knew intimately, leaving them dead or dying after spotting them on buses or near bus stops.

Professor Wilson looks into these cases in detail to build up a profile of Bellfield. He meets a young
blonde named Edel Harbison, who miraculously survived a hammer attack on Twickenham Green, just months before the murder of Amelie Delagrange. Wilson wants to see whether he can learn any new information that can unlock secrets of hidden crimes by Bellfield.

After his 2008 murder trial, Bellfield was named by police as a suspect in connection with at least
20 unsolved murders and attacks on women dating back to 1990. Professor Wilson believes that there are reasons why Bellfield should be investigated in connection with two hideous murders, including a case that made headlines around the world but for which another man is already serving a life sentence.

    When interviewing Bellfield's ex about his possible connection to Bristol she was clearly lying. Does a PHD in Criminology not cover emotional leakage in deceit? She clearly shook her head when making a positive reply and made unconscious movements with her hand toward her mouth. A liar and a bad one and terrible interviewing techniques. He need not of mentioned Bristol specifically he could just of asked about connections outside of London in general. This ruined the investigation for me.

    I have always been a great admirer of David Wilson,he is is selling himself short in this programme,as i don't think Bellfield is responsible for all crimes in this programme!

    This is ridiculous, I never have issues when watching BBC. It jumps, cuts to adverts mid sentence, keeps going to test screen then starting back at the beginning. Very disappointing.

    Normally the negative comments about the video quality annoy me more than the video. However starting the first advert when Prof Wilson is mid sentence then beeping at me, then starting the playback again, is annoying.
