Program information and concept
An eight-part series broadcast exclusively on the online-only BBC Three network, Unsolved: The Boy Who Disappeared was made available in its entirety on iPlayer on July 25, 2016. It is a real-life criminal series that features the investigation of the 1966 disappearance of Damien Nettles. The 16-year old was last seen on the Isle of Wight, and Branagh Munro and Alys Hurte, a pair of investigative journalists dive into the case analysis for three months, interviewing those involved in various ways and re-examining the evidence. The body was never found and no convictions have been made in the case in the years since the boy’s disappearance, although rumors of various kinds have been numerous.
The program is comprised of eight 15-minute episodes. It is executive produced by Adam Jessel, directed by Rich Perry, and is filmed in Cowes, the site of Damien’s disappearance.
Reception and chances of renewal
The show has been repeatedly compared to Netflix’ hit Making a Murderer and the podcast Serial and was one of the highly anticipated BBC Three originals since its move to the digital-only format. It has a 6.4/10 rating on IMDb, which denotes mostly positive reviews. The one-case concept does not presuppose a renewal for a second season that would focus on the same crime, but perhaps Munro and Harte will find another unsolved crime or mysterious case to investigate. Please stay tuned and we will let you know when BBC Three makes a decision on the show’s future.
