In Search Of... "Jim Jones" (1981)

This episode does a pretty good job at taking a look at the life of Jim Jones, the religious leader who would eventually kill over nine hundred people at Jonestown. The episode starts off talking about Jones' childhood and his rise to power, which eventually had him becoming a con making with a strong enough mind to fool people into following him. We then get to the tragic events that ended up taking so many lives. The story of Jones is certainly a fascinating one and this episode does a very good job at telling it. The bonus is that there's a lot of interview footage with Jones as well as other reports that were done on him. It's certainly a very fascinating subject.
