The Batman Shootings (1 x 60′) – Fast-turnaround documentary on the Colorado cinema shootings in the USA. Presenter Amal Fashanu travels to Aurora, Colorado, and speaks to survivors including Jansen Young who lived because her boyfriend shielded her from bullets. Amal also discovers how the gunman tried to join a local rifle club in the weeks before the shootings.
Speaking to young Americans, Amal hears what they say about the rights to own a gun, which is protected by the US Constitution, and finds out whether they think the State of Colorado should pass the death penalty on the gunman, James Holmes, who identified himself to police as The Joker.
