Episode 4: The Philpotts

Summary

In May 2012, six children aged between five and 13 died at the hands of their parents Mick and Mairead Philpott in a house fire in Derby. The blaze was started as an attempt to frame the former mistress of father-of-17 Mick, and despite tearful appearances in front of the TV cameras, the couple were convicted of manslaughter months later. This documentary features interviews with eyewitnesses and neighbours who tried to save the children.
