The show recreates famous crimes from the 1920 to the early 1970's talking to principle people involved in the crime coverage and investigation. The stories are narrated in the first person, usually by a female persona, as though the narrator was an outside observer at the time (a neighbor, townsperson, etc.). The narrator's persona is never directly identified as an actual person from the event however
A Series to Remember
I can't remember watching a series that I enjoyed more than this one. The photography was exceptional, costuming and set design was perfect (I was around so I have personal experience), and the narration was spot on - not too much, not too little. As an added benefit, the series includes original insurance advertisements for AllState, adding to the ambiance. The acting in this series deserves special note. The characters that portray the reenactments do not show much emotion. This leaves an interesting impression on the viewer - almost as though the emotions of the characters are left up to the viewers to imagine, leaving a very haunting sense of distance. This series is a cut above the rest. In short, it rates a 10 out of 10 it in my book. I just don't know what they could have done better!
