From award-winning duo Neil McKay and Jeff Pope, Four Lives will dramatize another true crime affair. The miniseries will look at the deaths of four young men and their families’ struggle to uncover the truth of what happened to them. Express.co.uk has the truth about the new series.
How many episodes are there in Four Lives?
Four Lives is a three-part drama series that airs on BBC One on Monday January 3 at 9 p.m. ET.
The BBC has deleted the show, meaning it will air consecutive evenings of the week in the same 9 p.m. time slot.
For those who want to watch the whole series at one time rather than waiting every night, the BBC will make all episodes available on BBC iPlayer starting at 9 p.m. on January 3.
Four Lives was announced in 2019 under the working title The Barking Murders, but this was later changed to put the focus back on the victims.

The miniseries stars comic Stephen Merchant who will ditch his comedic character to give a spooky twist as the doomed murderer Port.
Award-winning actress Sheridan Smith will take on the role of the bereaved mother of one of the victims.
This show marks Smith’s latest collaboration with Pope having worked with the Oscar-nominated writer on Cilla, The Moorside, Mrs Biggs and Isolation Stories.
Other cast members include Jaime Winstone, Rufus Jones, Robert Emma, ââDaniel Ryan, Leanne Best, and Stephanie Hyam.
Reflecting on the matter, Pope told media, including US entertainment channel Deadline: Point of View, accurately recounting what was happening to them every step of the way.
Pope went on to say, “He needs to be clubbed around the head to prevent this from happening again.”
He added: “After waiting all this time, the only light is that we are now transmitting our show when the story is in the foreground.”
Four Lives will air on BBC One on Monday January 3rd at 9pm and all episodes will be available on BBC iPlayer
