1. Making of a Madman
Sadistic preacher Jim Jones forms The Peoples Temple cult. His lust for power becomes unstoppable.
2. On the Run
The dark side of Jim Jones is exposed; the cult flees to Jonestown. His followers are trapped.
3. Under Siege
A heroic congressman arrives; Temple members plot their escape. Jim Jones plans his final stand.
I always thought that the people willingly dranked the poison. My only question is, why did some of them leave their children when they escaped?
I found this series on the Jonestown events to be quite factual, and there were a lot of commentaries that took you inside the ordeal. This was a very good series.

This is a very well made documentary. Tragic and sad but very true and real. Just like the one survivor states, I can see this happening in our society right now. The way people follow our very unqualified President is very similar.
