This aired in the UK in January.

In the early hours of Wednesday, 7 August 1985, police in Chelmsford, UK received a distressed phone call from local farmer, Jeremy Bamber. Officers were called to an incident at his parents’ remote farmhouse where five members of the Bamber family were found murdered; Jeremy Bamber’s sister Sheila Caffell, her twin six-year-old sons, Daniel and Nicholas, and her adoptive parents, Nevill and June Bamber.

Originally thought to be an open and shut case of murder-suicide by mentally unwell former-model Sheila, the doubts of one officer, Detective Sergeant Stan Jones, turned the case on its head.

White House Farm features an impressive cast including Freddie Fox as Jeremy Bamber, Mark Addy (Game of Thrones) as DS Stan Jones, Stephen Graham (This Is England, Boardwalk Empire) as DCI ‘Taff’ Jones and Cressida Bonas as Sheila Caffell. Gemma Whelan (Game of Thrones, Killing Eve), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones, Jojo Rabbit), Mark Stanley (Game of Thrones), Alexa Davies (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), Amanda Burton (Silent Witness) and Nicholas Farrell take supporting roles in the drama.

White House Farm is based on extensive research, interviews and published accounts including, ‘The Murders at White House Farm’ by Carol Ann Lee with additional material from ‘In Search of the Rainbow’s End’ by Colin Caffell, ex-husband of Sheila and father to the two boys who died, Daniel and Nicholas Caffell.

Monday 8 June on Binge.
