A BBC documentary
was broadcast in March 2016 to mark the 20-year anniversary of the Dunblane
tragedy in which 16 children and their teacher were shot in Dunblane Primary
School, before the killer, Thomas Hamilton, turned the gun on himself on
13 March 1996.
The film includes parents and siblings of some of the children who died that day. Between them, they construct a powerful exploration of whether time can heal all wounds and love can triumph over evil.
