Unsolved: The Boy Who Disappeared (BBC iPlayer)
After a night out with friends in November 1996, 16-year-old Damien Nettles vanished. There have been no sightings of the Isle of Wight teenager and his body has never been found. This eight-part documentary series, available now on BBC iPlayer, explores the mysterious disappearance and turns up new leads.
The investigation is led by reporters Alys Harte and Bronagh Munro, who moved to the Isle of Wight for several months to piece together the events surrounding Damien’s disappearance. As well as speaking to Damien’s friends and people linked to the case, they delve into the dark underbelly of the island and unearth shocking evidence about the fateful night the teenager vanished…
Dark drama Bates Motel, a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s classic thriller Psycho, centres on the lives of tormented teenager Norman Bates and his domineering mother Norma.
Set in the modern day, the series opens with widow Norma (Vera Farmiga) and son Norman (British actor Freddie Highmore) moving from Arizona to the fictional US town of White Pine Bay, Oregon, where they purchase a rundown motel. Norma plans to reopen the motel and build a new life for her and her son, following the death of Norman’s father.
Norma and Norman’s fresh start is quickly derailed, however, by a brutal murder, the unexpected arrival of a volatile figure from the past and a shock discovery in one of the motel rooms.
Follow Norman’s downward spiral, Norma’s desperate attempts to protect him, and the sinister goings-on in White Pine Bay in the first three series of Bates Motel on Netflix now.
