    This was only recently released so not sure where you can watch it yet. It's certainly got people talking, and with good reason. It's such an amazing story, definitely one of those 'fact is stranger than fiction' stories. And it's so good because it touches on so many different issues and offers some fascinating perspectives on the 'nurture vs nature' debate. I really enjoyed it. The first half of the story of how the three brothers met and how they basically became celebrities (They even appeared in Desperately Seeking Susan!) is such a joyous and phenomenal journey. The second half takes a dark twist and delves into how the whole scenario came about, who orchestrated it, and what their motives were. Definitely worth a look.

    I'm almost certain I saw this while browsing Netflix last night.

    It varies from country to country. Some Dutchflix titles may not be available in the UK, and vice versa.

    I think you'll like it. It's almost like a soap opera story line, except they'd never get away with it on a soap cause it would seem too far fetched.

    It's not on the Irish Neflix either. I doubt it's on the UK one either yet.

    I just checked and it's not on there, maybe something about it was suggested to me on YouTube.

    The doc is on channel 4 (uk) tonight at 9pm. I guess it will be available in their iPlayer/Catch up after that.
