From the assassination of John F Kennedy to the gunning down of Mahatma Gandhi, the tragic shooting of John Lennon to the brutal bombing of one of Hitler’s henchmen, this series brings you as close to the killers as the cameramen themselves – which sometimes means just a few feet.

Many of the assassinations have been clouded by mystery and secrecy. Why did Stalin give the order to murder Leon Trotsky after he had fled Russia? What was the true story behind the assassination of Che Guevara in 1967? Why was Michael Collins, one of Ireland’s greatest freedom fighters, gunned down by his own side? Did anyone survive the assassination of the Romanov family in Ekaterinburg in 1918? Was Martin Luther King’s death preventable and was the right man imprisoned for his murder? These and many other questions are answered in this new 26 part series.

Using rare archive footage and reconstructions, each episode focuses on a different story, from attacks on royalty, politicians and guerrilla leaders to media personalities who all, for one reason or another, stepped in the way of an assassin determined to bring their life to an end. Many of their motives have remained shrouded in mystery. Until now…
