"Told in three parts, Prime Suspect: The Madeleine McCann Case examines who Christian B is and how he can be linked to one of the world's most well-known, unsolved cases.
"Friends of the suspect, an ex-girlfriend and key figures in the case, such as the suspect's defence counsel, the German prosecutor and the former lead investigator on the case, exclusively share their thoughts in this eerie, fascinating documentary."
