If you didn't see it in the cinema, now's your chance. This is the story of orca Tilikum, who has been involved in the deaths of three people while in captivity, two of those taking place at a park in Orlando, Florida, with the most recent incident in 2010. Never-before-seen footage and interviews with trainers and experts reveal how captive whales have been treated over the past four decades, and the programme examines what could be to blame for Tilikum's unusual behaviour.
