The true crime documentary series will feature interviews from a number of people who were close with Jill throughout her life, as well as those who were accused of killing her.

Nigel Dando, Jill's brother, features in the documentary and offers an insight into what it was like finding out about his sister's death and everything he did to protect his family. Nigel spoke exclusively to and explained why he takes part in documentaries like these.

He said: "It's something that I've often had to do since she died, and to a greater or lesser extent I'll try and cooperate with requests for my cooperation with these films that are being made. The reasons being if my role in anything will help to find out who killed Jill or give us a reason as to why she was killed then I do it."

The man who was initially convicted for Jill's death and later acquitted, Barry George, is also in the documentary - revealing what it has been like for him since his release.
