Storyville, originally on BBC4 but I watched it on the iPlayer.

It's called Your Father's Murderer : A letter to Zachary.

Don't know if anyone else has watched it, but it documents a true life murder and the aftermath felt by his family and many friends.

There are twists to the story which I won't go into in case anyone wants to watch it, but my word, what a story. I've just cried my eyes out. I can cry at programmes, but this had me sobbing.

I'd recommend anyone watch this - it's not gruesome at all, though the description of the murder is upsetting of course. It was more the struggle the family went through and the amazing friends that were left behind.

It's a docco you only need to see once. It is utterly utterly heartbreaking. Brilliant but shattering
