Journalist David Farrier stumbles upon a mysterious tickling competition online. As he delves deeper he comes up against fierce resistance, but that doesn't stop him getting to the bottom of a story stranger than fiction.
This documentary contains reconstructions, but the actual footage of the motorway incident is shown, and if it were not, you simply wouldn't believe it. A TV crew were following a police patrol, and ended up filming more than they bargained for. This is as shocking and bizarre a story as we have seen in this age of wonders: twin sisters from Sweden turn up on a UK motorway, throw themselves in front of fast moving traffic, and survive.
What we did not see was the footage of one of them shortly throwing herself off a fifty foot bridge, and again surviving, with broken ankles and a fractured skull - boy, did she get off lightly! That was after she had stabbed a man to death, a Good Samaritan whose sense of decency should have been over-ridden by a sense of danger. Alas. We hear from many people including the police officers who attended the first incident; they still sound shocked. Whatever label the psychobabbling shrinks put on this case, the mystery is unlikely to be solved anytime soon if ever.
