I've only watched episodes 1 and 2 so far but not worried about spoilers in a documentary. I felt surprisingly emotional watching it as it brought back some unpleasant memories, like the National Front logo graffiti everywhere and the ever-present "**** Go Home".

Watched Episode 3 yesterday and I'm so pissed off with that cop, who to this day is insisting that the husband/father poured petrol through his own letterbox, set fire to it, sprinted upstairs, burned himself all over, then jumped out of the window in order to murder his wife and children, even though the firefighters and forensics both said that was impossible. Seems like he'll do anything to refuse to admit it was a racist attack.
