The famous Oprah Winfrey interview and documentary regarding Madeleine’s disappearance.
So far unavailable in the UK. In English with Portuguese subtitles, since this was only shown outside the US on Portuguese TV.
The sound quality is diabolical! Sorry about that, but out of my control!
Chanel 4 are showing their own version of the McCann story tonight at 9pm.
The documentary made by Goncal Amaral, the Portuguese policeman in charge of the investigation, which is not available in the UK is still available on my site here
Edited to add:
Why is nothing ever simple with the McCanns?
Why when they are asked ‘and did you see the children’ – why do they have to ‘split the answer up’ – ‘yes, the twins were sleeping, and Madeleine was lying just as I left her’, why the earlier reference to her ‘lying in the recovery position’, why always the slightly odd turns of phrase that can be taken in different ways?
Why do they still go on about dinning ’50 yards, or 25 yards, or ‘within eyesight’ that night, and carefully omit to say that the earlier in the week they were dinning at the Millennium restaurant – a brisk 20 minutes walk away.
Why, two years later are they still going on about ‘borders not being closed’, even if they were the only people in Europe who did not know that night that there were no borders, they have surely had it pointed out to them a million times since.
Why, when asked to comment on the closure of the Portuguese investigation do they say ‘how upsetting’ that was – they had the opportunity to keep the investigation open, it was closed because they refused to answer the police questions when interviewed, and declined to take part in the police reconstruction, although they didn’t refuse – it was left to the Tapas 9 not to be available. They knew perfectly well, still know, that the investigation could have stayed open, if they had co-operated.
Why can’t Gerry McCann say ‘I want to believe, or I need to believe, that Madeleine is still alive.
Why does he keep saying ‘there’s no evidence that she has come to any harm’ -with that heavy Glaswegian emphasis on ‘evidence’.
Why does he have to make it so damn hard to stay neutral as to whether they are telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Why do I feel that neutrality slipping away every time he opens his mouth?
What is it about the man?
