There is a two part programme at 21.00 on 22nd and 23rd December on More 4.

It's described as new though usually everything there is a repeat - it's likely I think to have been shown elsewhere before, not on Freeview.

Can you record it and post it up (probably not possible thinking about it).

I'm sure they will repeat it again at some point.

If you watch it, then post your thoughts on it.

Here's the first part of More 4's programme. I haven't seen it yet - perhaps someone can tell me if there isn't too much of Patsy in it (unlikely) as she has the same effect on me as a certain other lady!

I remember having seen years ago on youtube a documentary, which was even years older, as Patsy was still alive at the time. There's only one scene in that doc, that I distinctly remember: she was showing how and where the killer had entered the house - the cellar where he broke a window. However, the broken glass was laying on the outside ...

I've just watched the second part of the More 4 documentary - very interesting.

The conclusion is the same as some of us came to here; Burke killed his sister - maybe not intentionally - and his parents covered it up to protect him.

Just watched 2nd one. Really good series. Burke could never be prosecuted because he was under 10 when it happened.

That DA is dodgy. Wonder what he meant by it being political. Wonder if he was paid.

There were certainly times when I was thinking that there are similarities with the McCann case with pressure from on high not to charge the Ramseys with anything.

Having watched the clips of police interviews with Burke as a child, I feel more confident in saying as I have before that he is on the autistic spectrum.

That doesn't of course confirm that he killed his sister though.

Totally agree - in fact I thought that immediately when I saw him being interviewed on Dr. Phil programme earlier this year.  But seeing the interviews with Burke as a child my thoughts were reinforced.  No empathy there or thoughts for `the other`, didn`t mix well socially, always on his Nintendo. Saying his Mum `went psycho`.  I doubt whether he has any guilt about it even today.

I felt sorry for him having to live with this mother who had such tremendous social ambitions and living in that fake world of pageants, beauty etc. obviously living vicariously through her daughter.  It seems JonBenet got a bike and a doll for Xmas and Burke was referred to as `playing with a plastic puzzle toy` he`d had for Xmas (but then a child on the autistic spectrum would love that).

The most telling bit for me was that he had no fear that the murderous stranger would come back for him.

I agree. Both the parents are as odious as another two neglectful parents. The Ramsey parents look as hard as nails....that poor child..... I wonder what the brother is like? Not much fun living with the legacy of a murdered sister? Was he a suspect at one stage?

What kind of parents would want to objectify their daughter to that degree?

ETA: I see the brother is mentioned upthread. Should have read the whole thread first...

Children who are murdered are nearly always murdered at the hands of someone they know and possibly even live with. Kate in her book gives statistics showing that it is quite rare for strangers to be the perpetrators.

Murder is obviously at the extreme end of the abuse spectrum and, imo, there is likely to have been prior abuse of some sort. I think this is a feature in both these cases.

In the Ramsey case there was evidence of sexual abuse. In the McCann case the parents themselves suggest paedophilia as a motive for the crime and Kate in her book describes in graphic detail what might have happened.

I see no reason not to take the Gaspers seriously and there are many, many other red flags. I don't think the McCanns were a 'normal' family whatever that means and there is so little about their past it's extraordinary.

I should think there is a fair amount of dirt that could be dug on the Ramsey family and I wonder if in both cases the mothers regretted their choice of husband and father.

Both girls were objectified by the adults around them, imo. With ultimately tragic consequences irrespective of what actually happened.

Both very sad cases.

Well, a lot of parents expect their children to excel in things that they themselves were unable to do. You hear of it in sports like swimming and tennis - children being pushed from an early age to become champions, whether or not they actually want to be themselves.

A lot of people think that child beauty pageants are fine - I don't that's for sure - but apparently JonBenet enjoyed being in the limelight.

Burke as we know is likely to have resented all the attention his sister received and, if the reports are true that he was in the habit of smearing excrement around (apologies if anyone is eating) then he certainly was a disturbed child.

Here's the second part of the documentary.

Some children are very 'biddable' and will do anything to try to please the adults around them. Not saying this is the case here but it could have been. Perhaps the same with Madeleine McCann. In a family there is quite often one child who is the 'people pleaser' and takes on the role of keeping the peace and smoothing things over. If the Ramsay boy was a real handful then it is not impossible that JonBenet was expected to over-compensate, to be 'perfect' to make up for her brother's perceived shortcomings.

Unfortunately, this type of dynamic is quite common in dysfunctional families and I would say that both families were most definitely that.

Poster - in last night`s programme the experts determined there was no sexual abuse.

IMO there was jealousy, deviant characters and all and foremost: this was an inside "job" because of that.
