THE PROMISE - True Crime Tuesdays

Young lovers Jens Soering and Elizabeth Haysom were arrested in London in 1986 for cheque fraud—only to arouse suspicion when their love letters linked them to the gruesome murder of Elizabeth’s parents a year prior in Bedford County, Virginia. Extradited to the U.S., both have been in jail ever since, but Jens now maintains he committed the murders out of love for Elizabeth, who manipulated him.

GLEN CAMPBELL: I'LL BE ME

On August 8, the world lost “sweet-voiced, guitar-picking son of a sharecropper” (The New York Times) Glen Campbell (Official). We pay tribute to country music legend with this special, one-off screening of the acclaimed documentary that tracked his final tour. What he thought would last for five weeks turned into 151 spectacular sold-out shows over a year and a half. What makes the tour truly extraordinary is that Glen had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and had been told to hang up his guitar and prepare for the inevitable.
