Granada made 2 series of Real Crime at least and this episode was a fascinating (albeit intensely tragic and sad) insight into possible reasons why people perform such hard-to-fathom actions which cause such distress and shock to individuals and society. Shown first a few years before Denis Nilsen was due for parole, arguably the most intriguing question raised by this documentary was simply, 'Why?'. It attempted to look for the psychological causes behind the killings. This episode was aired several times over a period of a few years. Particularly harrowing were the accounts from the victims' relatives and also one young man who was attacked but survived and his intense distress was plain to see as he recalled what had happened to him.
