Crime & Investigation

Madeleine McCann: The Prime Suspect

Madeleine McCann disappeared in 2007 on a family holiday in Portugal and her case is still unsolved and is arguably the most high-profile missing persons case of the last 25 years.

Ex-detective Mark Williams-Thomas carries out the first active TV investigation into the German paedophile Christian B since he became the prime suspect in the Madeleine McCann case. In a world exclusive, he tests the account given by Christian B himself.

The German authorities say they have evidence that Maddie is dead and that Christian B is guilty of her murder but they also say there isn't enough evidence to prosecute him.  Mark already has new information - he has secured interviews with his accusers, former friends, neighbours and associates - some of whom have never spoken to the media before.  As he discovers evidence that could turn the story on its head, was Christian B responsible for abducting Madeleine? This series is poised to offer the most definitive answer yet.
