This topic has been tackled many times but this has to be the least engaging I have seen. This isn't down to the stories of the three women but the awkward and amateur journalism of the presenter who really needs to find a new career. Women on death row and their families have granted her interviews but she has done them a great disservice. She asks questions which make the viewer cringe and leaps from one story to another and the programme has no focus or point.

Not interesting

Quite a boring top line look at 3 women's death row trials. No real underlying message or dialogue and very odd questions when interviewing the women. "Have you ever wanted to end it" was a question positioned to all three women... not appropriate. Didn't feel like there was any real reason for the documentary to be made.
I'd give it a miss.
