The Real Des

The Real Des

Directed by Iwan Roberts

On the surface a mild-mannered civil servant, Nilsen’s true persona was terrifying and deadly. But he was also a rarity – a psychopath who wanted to talk about his crimes. Guided by criminologist Professor David Wilson, who spent decades interviewing and corresponding with Nilsen, this unique film features new material and previously unseen archive, alongside interviews with victims’ families and footage from Nilsen’s infamous ITV interview in 1992.

Such a tragic story. My hearts go out to the victims and their families, as well as those unidentified.

I'm glad I watched this documentary. It gives a more realistic account of who Nilsen was, but more importantly, the victims' are given some voice.
