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.

Pamela Smart has al­ways main­tained her in­no­cence
