Tears, lies and videotape

Post by ufercoffy on 05.04.10 23:44

In 2008, Karen Matthews made tearful TV appeals for the return of her missing daughter Shannon, all the while knowing where she was. Similarly, Gordon Wardell and Tracie Andrews attended press conferences after having killed their partners.

Psychologist David Canter and Paul Ekman examine footage of these and others who made appeals on crimes to the media but who later were found guilty themselves, including Ian Huntley and Fadi Nasri, to explore their behaviour and look for telltale signs of their dishonesty.

ITV1 has commissioned Mentorn Media to produce a one-off documentary exploring the phenomenon of criminals in high profile cases posing as victims while using the media to appeal to the ‘culprits’.

Tears, Lies and Videotape will examine Karen Matthews’ notorious television appeals to find her missing daughter Shannon in the most recent case of a guilty person using the media spotlight to try to fool the police and the public.

Commissioned by ITV1 Controller of Current Affairs Jeff Anderson, this hour-long special also examines several other cases. Using archive footage of the appeals, and fresh interviews with witnesses and police, the stories of lies and deceit are uncovered.

Analysis by expert psychologists including Professor David Canter, one of the country’s leading criminal investigative psychologists, reveals the motivation and personality traits of people who, after committing a terrible crime, risk appearing on television in an attempt to convince the nation that they are the grief-stricken victims.

The producers are Nick London and Kaye Godleman. Sarah Robinson is the Assistant Producer.

Nick London said: “The depth of Karen Matthews’ deception is truly shocking, but she wasn’t the first to go on TV to try to fool the public.

“The biggest problem, as we have discovered, is that innocent victims who make genuine appeals for help are now viewed with suspicion because of the Karen Matthews of this world.”
