A 3 part documentary about the Des Plains(Chicago) serial killer.
33+ victims, most buried under the void of his bungalow.

He appeared to be a pillar of the community. Mixing with politicians, Including passing Secret Service vetting to meet President Carters wife despite doing time in Iowa a decade before for a sex crime with a minor.

27th September 1977.

Dave Allen at Large ran for 5 series(33 episodes) between 1971-79 the first couple of series were on BBC2.
A great relaxed comedy style sat in a leather chair smoking a fag, with what appeared to be whiskey in a glass beside him.
Some funny satirical sketches featuring the Catholic Church and some of the hypocrisy surrounding religion, which was rarely aired in those days.

A very amusing raconteur. I particularly liked the way he portrayed drunks in his stories!

Re: Not the Nine O'Clock News - got the "Best of" DVDs, absolutely brilliant and launched several careers.

Re: Dave Allen - one of my all-time favourite comedians - again I've got a couple of DVDs of his stuff. I remember his series in the early 90s (only monologues, no sketches) where at one point in every show I'd be crying with laughter. His sketches were a bit hit and miss, but my favourite two were the one with the rival Catholic funeral processions, and the one where the drunk driver runs over the grim reaper.
