Confessions of a Serial Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes was released yesterday (Thursday 24 January) and the four-part documentary features interviews that took place while he was on death row. Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. He was executed via the electric chair in 1989.
