20 Years On Death Row

Balonne Beacon - - TV GUIDE LIFE -

Sun­day, sbs, 8.30pm

This is an Amer­i­can crime doc­u­men­tary with a French twist. French jour­nal­ist Agnès Buthion be­came fas­ci­nated with the case of Cal­i­for­nian truck driver Keith Zon Doolin, who has been on death row since 1996 for the shoot­ing of six sex work­ers, two of whom died. In this four-part doco, Buthion – who also di­rected the episodes – in­ter­views Doolin, vis­its the crime scenes and analy­ses po­lice doc­u­ments. Fas­tid­i­ous and clear-eyed, it’s par­tic­u­larly in­ter­est­ing to gain an out­sider’s view of the crime and the case. Buthion quickly re­veals the many holes in the case – and the fright­en­ing in­ad­e­quacy of

Doolin’s lawyer.
