NOVA: WHO KILLED LINDBERGH'S BABY?
January 30, 2013  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

PBS, 9:00 p.m. ET

 

What can today’s top C.S.I.-level forensic sciences bring to a really, really cold case? That’s what Nova asks tonight, as it poses, and attempts to answer, the question: Who Killed Lindbergh’s Baby? In 1932, the 18-month-old son of famous aviator Charles Lindbergh was taken from his crib, kidnapped with a ransom note left behind. Yet two months later, the baby’s body was found, and evidence at the time led to the arrest, conviction and execution of German immigrant Bruno Hauptmann. How does that case hold up now? Check local listings.

Perhaps one is too accustomed to the cold case programs so readily available on public television.... personally I did not think this was thorough enough and sadly lacking. A noticeable lack in this program is a presentation of other theories, most notably that the lindberg baby was given to a family for adoption and that the baby was taken to show the power of the mob who may have taken him. These new theories are interesting but sort of left up in the air, particularly the eugenics approach. Sorry i am not as articulate as i would like to be today. I think the program might have presented a better view of some of the more plausible stories put forth in the past. I have read that the baby found was larger and older than Charlie and from that came the adoption theory. It still remains a mystery, not having been proven in this show.
