Sad attempt to manipulate the audience
"Billy the Kid: New Evidence" follows the journey of a man with dollar signs in his eyes as he attempts to authenticate a photograph with no provenance because he thinks one of the blurry images in it looks like Billy the Kid.The documentary takes a very one sided approach in an attempt to prove the photos authenticity; leaving out most of the vast majority of experts who do not think the photo is of Billy the Kid (or don't think the case is even close to being proved). One of the major pieces of "evidence" was that the photo was supposedly taken at the ranch of John Tunstall, and the filmmakers even claim to have found the location, with the building in the photo still in existence; one problem; the building they claim to be the same one as in the photo wasn't built until the 1930s. Embarrassing that National Geographic would air a show that had the obvious goal of "proving" they found a photograph of Billy the Kid whether the evidence showed that or not. And for the record, the vast majority of experts do not believe the photo is of Billy the Kid and the regulators.
