Joanna Yeates: Murder at Christmas

Joanna Yeates: Murder at Christmas

Joanna Yeates could not know she was living next to a human time-bomb ticking towards murder. Vincent Tabak spent hundreds of hours trawling pornographic sites learning the best way to kill…and then he set about his task.

In Joanna Yeates: Murder at Christmas we meet the people who lived through one of the most compelling crime stories of the decade.

Friends tell us about the Joanna they knew; top prosecutor Ann Redropp explains the complexity of bringing Vincent Tabak to justice; neighbours of Tabak in his native Holland reveal the man they grew up with and Dutch journalists explain how Holland reacted to a story that shocked Europe.

The man who unwittingly brought Tabak and Joanna together, their landlord Chris Jefferies, reveals the part he played in their lives and the horror of being arrested for Joanna’s murder.
