In 1927, Donald Merrett began a 12 month sentence for forgery. A charge of murder had been found Not Proven. The killing for which he had stood trial, was that of his mother ….and he was just 17. Born in New Zealand in 1908, Merrett moved with his mother Bertha to Edinburgh, in 1926. After she died and on his release from prison, he married 17 year old Vera Bonnar and went on a thirty year spree across Europe. He spent a large inheritance, consorted with countless women - and traded on the black market during WWII. In his 40s, he returned to Britain. When Vera refused to give him cash, he drowned her in the bath and when her mother tried to intervene, Merrett showed no mercy. Donald Merrett was one of the most colourful and daring criminals of his day. From his crimes as a teenager in Edinburgh to his demise, his story is told through drama reconstruction and expert opinion.

In a revealing documentary, Mike Leigh, director of Secrets & Lies, Vera Drake and Abigail's Party among many others, talks to Alan Yentob about a unique body of work and a lifelong struggle to make films on his own terms. On day one of a Mike Leigh film, there is no script, no story and the actors do not know if they will even be in the final film. It is a process that has yielded some of cinema's most celebrated performances, and Leigh's new film Mr Turner is already winning critical acclaim. Actors including Jim Broadbent, Eddie Marsan, Sally Hawkins, Lesley Manville and James Corden give fascinating insights into the director and his distinctive method of working.
