It didn't. Do you believe a 6 part drama will just focus on Bamber as the killer ?

It will cover both possibilities to make the drama more entertaining for the viewers. This will result in people thinking Bamber may be innocent. Just as you did after watching the 'Crimes that shook Britain' documentary.

I don't think it will cover both possibilities - the description makes it clear that Bamber will be seen as the killer but that it will look at the complex relationships within the family.

Seems like the above is moving full steam ahead:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5872339/BAZ-BAMIGBOYE-Freddie-Fox-fits-mass-killer-Jeremy-Bamber.html

Mass killer Jeremy Bamber, convicted of murdering five members of his family 32 years ago, will be portrayed by Freddie Fox in a six-part television drama about the massacre.

Fox, 29, brilliant as an aristocrat in Oscar Wildeís An Ideal Husband at the Vaudeville Theatre, which has just a couple of weeks left to run, has signed on to portray the narcissistic psychopath.

The ITV series, using a screenplay by Kris Mrksa, who wrote the spooky BBC1 Requiem series, is based, in part, on a published investigation of the murders by author Carol Ann Lee.

Filming starts later next month, and itís clear to see why the story of what happened at White House Farm is likely to make compelling viewing.

Originally, police suspicion had fallen on Ms Caffell, a schizophrenic who had taken herself off her medication. One early theory was that it could be a case of murder-suicide.

However, some of the more astute officers on the murder squad felt a number of things didnít add up ó and a few were suspicious of Bamber the moment they set eyes on him.

There were inconsistencies that troubled the police. And then came a bombshell: Bamberís former girlfriend Julie Mugford told police that he had spoken about killing his family and claiming a lucrative inheritance.

'Requiem' was the biggest lot of convoluted nonsensical confusion I've watched in a long time, so combine that with a 'vaudeville' actor and you might have something more laughable that conclusive or even factual?

Am keeping an open mind. The fact it's been stated Bamber will be portrayed as the narcissistic psychopath he is, means it could wrap up his public campaign once and for all? Though there aren't many people left who believe him to be innocent.

Hope it's more accurate than the article that states "Originally, police suspicion had fallen on Ms Caffell, a schizophrenic who had taken herself off her medication. One early theory was that it could be a case of murder-suicide.

The documentaries often have inaccurracies. The latest 'Countdown to Murder' had the kitchen fight before any shots had been fired.

A 6 part drama could have hundreds of deliberate or accidential discrepancies. It's a drama, not a documentary.

The latest article says -

'The dramaís creative and production team are debating what they will (and wonít) show of the brutal killings'.

----------

There was a Youtube documentary which had quite a brutal reconstruction. Showing Bamber shooting Nevill, June & Sheila. It then  portrayed Bamber as negating Nevill in the kitchen with one blow. Which was wrong.

A " 'vaudeville' " actor who, curiously, does bear a passing resemblance to the person he's about to play. Curiously, too, because the family from whom he's descended is said to have links to The Family who one of their number is famous for having once played....................the same Family that, it's been erroneously suggested, Jeremy is descended from. Curiouser and curiouser.

Interesting likeness, isn't it? There's also to be remembered that Jeremy was, naturally, much fairer than pictures suggest, He was dark because it was coloured.

If it works why fix it... with yet another drama-doc. This 1993 version featuring Neil Roberts as Jeremy Bamber and Diane Keen as Miss Marple was perfectly adequate although now deleted from YouTube...
