...subjects of this documentary-drama was the fact that its main focus was whether or not Billy the Kid should be given a posthumous pardon as (if the researchers have dome their work correctly) it seems he wasn't all as bad as he was made out to be in history. Very well-researched and fairly good acting. Shot in southern Spain due to the similarity of that landscape with the badlands of the USA. Colin Stinton was particularly good in his role. The lead actor was certainly somewhat more handsome than the real Billy the Kid. One of a series of several about the Wild West, the Custer episode (though I haven't seen it) was meant to be very good also.
