Fred West: The Glasgow Girls
A three-part documentary series unravelling the untold story of the years Fred West spent living in Glasgow in the early 1960s. Uncovering the hidden lives and experiences of his first three victims - his first wife, Rena Costello, her daughter Charmaine and her friend Anne McFall – Fred West: The Glasgow Girls investigates how his life of crime began in Scotland and how this period shaped the serial killer he would become.
Led by a female creative team, this distinctive crime series poses questions that haven’t been asked before on this subject. Why were repeated warnings about Fred West’s abusive behaviour ignored? Why were these victims never reported missing? And crucially, how many lives could have been saved if Fred West had been stopped sooner, before he met Rosemary, before the horrors at Cromwell St?
