Myra: The Making of a Monster (2003)
Until her prison death in 2002, Myra Hindley was recognized as ‘the most hated woman in Britain‘. The public hatred towards her was so intense, that after she was arrested w/ boyfriend Ian Brady in 1966, for the murders & rapes of 5 children, the name ‘Myra’ almost disappeared from UK society.
UK’s Cannel5, ‘Myra: The Making of a Monster’ offers a unique glimpse into Myra’s life through news footage of the crimes, and personal testimonies from her associates & the reporter that worked the story and had to sort through the gory discoveries of the children’s bodies that were buried on the bleak Saddleworth Moor.
“The Making of a Monster (Five) was a diligent, thoughtful, unhysterical essay about what might have made Myra Hindley the woman she was, and even tried to assess just how evil this child-murderer was.” broadcastnow
