BBC Radio 4 has reacted through this show to the series of documentaries produced by Channel 4, entitled "Romanian are coming", which have created a certain anxiety within a part ot the Romanian community in the UK. We are grateful to BBC for presenting this academic study and hope that politicians will take notice in the upcoming electoral campaign. The show will repeat at future dates.

Posted by AVAnti Productions on October 18, 2014 at 12:10 PM Comments comments (0)

AVANTI P&M is very pleased to announce that our summer addition to the agency, actor ALLEN WATTS has been cast in a new Channel 5 series FIRST KILL LAST KILL,directed by Nick Aarons and produced by Crackit Productions. ALLEN WATTS will inherit the role of Harold Mackay, the father of Patrick Mackay who was a serial killer back in the 70s.



FIRST KILL LAST KILL is a documentary type series,

Commissioned as a six part series after the success of the Stockwell Strangler, with the help of leading experts, Prof. Wilson will examine this first kill in frighteningly forensic detail to get deep inside the mind of serial killers. He will walk in the murderers footsteps to understand how an unhinged member of society transforms into a violent and brutal slayer of innocent victims. What did they learn from their first kill and how did they apply it to their next? Then using the first and last kill to drive the narrative he'll forensically examine how our subject evolved from first time murderer to sophisticated serial killer throughout their killing spree, before pulling apart the details of the last grizzly slaying that led to their capture and subsequent demise. What was it about this last kill that led to their undoing? By comparing the first and last kill we'll bring fascinating and intelligent new insight into the life and mind of some of Britain's most notorious killers.
