Here is a link to an interesting podcast on the case, very detailed.

I downloaded the full series when first published and thought they were very well done by Martin van Beynen.  Well worth a listen, although you need to have more than just a passing interest in the case, and time to concentrate on it fully, I think.

More info, photos, plans and a police video of the Bain house here...

Thanks Myster, interesting to see the video of the house. I agree it's a good, professional job by Van Beynen in presenting the facts from both sides and a must for anyone interested in the case.

I approached with an open mind to the prospect of a MoJ, but looking at all the evidence, the only miscarriage is him being acquitted at the 2nd trial.

For me what sticks out is his bloodied fingerprints all over the gun (and Robin's lack of) could only have meant one thing. The investigation failing to test this blood allowed Bain at trial to claim it was rabbit blood and plant the seed of reasonable doubt in some of the jury.
