Trivia

"The Killing Game" about the life of killer Rodney Alacala was the last story by the well respected Harold Dow. Dow passed away as a result of complications from acute asthma during its production; he had arrived at a hospital emergency room and an inhaler was later found on the floor of his vehicle. Dow's son was brought in to finish narration of the episode and 48 Hours dedicated the episode posthumously to Dow. See more »

An investigative and in depth staple that entertains and ask questions.
12 May 2020 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

For years being a viewer of "CBS" this award winning real life investigative news program "48 Hours" has always been a must view as the reporting and interviews and cases examined are cutting edge and often open for challenge with both sides of the legal system often making challenges and fighting for answers. Each case featured does involve crime mostly murder and the cases are real life many are cold cases unsolved one's from many years ago it's like a search and find mission a detective show at it's best! It's really interesting and in depth many stories and cases featured are high profile and in depth that involve cases of serial killers. The interviews given with family members, police, and suspects are revealing and eye opening. Plus the reporting is from top notch "CBS" reporters! Overall award winning must see investigative show from "CBS" one of it's real life best!
