"The Staircase" is a fascinating, enthralling 8 episode documentary series that follows a criminal case from the beginning, when the emergency call was made, through to the court case and final verdict. Screened on SBS TV earlier this year, The Staircase was met with great acclaim from those who became addicted to the unravelling tale of Michael Peterson and his wife who died as a result of falling down a flight of narrow stairs. The Police claim her injuries were too severe to be those off falling alone and arrested her husband for murder. Crime or accident? Be taken in and decide for yourself. Directed by Academy Award Winning Director, Jean-Xavier de Lestrade. "The final episode contains enough horror and shock to send chills down your spine: you forget that this is not just a true story, it's a documentary".
