The torment of a gevangenisbezoek

A televisieavond where several good documentaries fighting for our attention.

1 THE WIFE OF A PEDOPHILE

NPO 2, 22.55-0.05 hour

British documentary about the wives and children of men who have been caught in possession of child pornography. The testimonials are real, but are uttered by actors to the privacy of the data subjects to protect. Not for sensitive souls.

2 LIFE BEHIND BARS: THE VISITING HOUR

One, 21.30-22.15 hours

Documentary about an aspect of prison life that often remains underexposed: the torment of the bezoekuur (for the visitors, not the inmates).

3 LA BÊTE HUMAINE

Arte, 20.55-22.35 hours

Bizarre French crime film from 1938, with the always great Jean Gabin. Followed by a documentary about the director of the movie, the monument to Jean Renoir.
