Selected TV appearances

Britain’s Darkest Taboos: David Swindle appeared in this Crime and Investigation channel in 2017 and 2018. The series continues to be broadcast on Netflix.

“Killed Abroad” BBC Documentary August 2018: This program followed David Swindle and his team in Spain investigating and reviewing the homicide of Craig Mallon in 2012 and unresolved death of Kirsty Maxwell in 2017.  The families of Craig Mallon and Kirsty Maxwell who appear and make heartfelt appeals for information in the documentary are conscious of the fact (and live in hope) that the people who watched this documentary which continues to be broadcast on “pay per view” channels will have information that they want to share.

Social media appeals and support from the public have played a major role in identifying potential evidence and pushing the authorities in Spain to progress lines of enquiry regarding Craig’s and Kirsty’s cases.

The questions as to what happened to Craig and Kirsty remain unanswered. We hope that this documentary and the social media platforms in the victims’ names will help to obtain those answers and encourage anyone with any information to make contact via the confidential email addresses 

MTV True Life Crime UK “Kirsty Maxwell” Documentary April 2021:  This program which examined the unresolved death of Kirsty Maxwell in Benidorm, Spain highlighted various controversial issues regarding the Spanish investigation and unanswered questions reached massive audiences throughout the world. The program continues to be shown on Amazon Prime and on social media platforms.
