Grief in the media

BBC1 - Remembering Dunblane

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.

People involved in the tragic events of that day have shared their stories in a BBC documentary, several for the first time.

They speak of the unimaginable horror - and of their determination not to be defined by Hamilton's unspeakable act of violence on 13 March 1996 - the deadliest firearms atrocity ever committed in the UK.
