During the show Professor Adrian Raine looks for biological causes of the 74-year-olds aggressive, risk-taking and psychopathic behaviour.

Meanwhile, Vicky Thakordas-Desai makes him revisit his most painful childhood experiences to better understand his criminal decisions.

Filming for the series began in July, as Professor Raine could only shoot during the summer recess.

Underworld TV, with the help of documentary producers had conversations with more than 300 murderers, who had served time and had been released.
