documentary / 10.00pm / Really
In 1990, Pamela Smart shot to fame. However, it wasn’t for her ambitions to be a TV presenter, but for her conviction for masterminding the murder of her husband, Gregg Smart, by her teenage lover. Series two of the realcrime docudrama begins with an analysis of the sensational Smart case, which involved seduction, underage sex and manipulation. Despite the show’s tawdry dramatic reconstructions, it’s a fascinating story, with well-balanced input from the journalists and law professionals who were there at the time, as well as Pamela herself, who was sentenced to life with no chance of parole.
