    Watching this, after reading Seany's posts and the other links, it seemed like this was a re-edit (or alternate edit prepared in case this happened) which enabled five to circumvent the injunction. I missed the first few minutes but after a brief clip of Dessie Noonan in the pub there was no further footage of him, just Dom (?).

    This appears to have been the origianl finished edit, since an appeal late on Tuesady overturned the earlier injunction which was sought by GMP on the grounds that comments made in the programme would be prejudicial to the ongoing murder inquirey following the subjects murder at the weekend.

    Taped this and watched it this evening...addictive viewing. Was shocked though by the apparent lack of respect for human life and couldn't get my head around the fact that he went to church but didn't consider this to have any influence in what he did...God just forgave him for everything so that was ok :confused:

    He was obviously very influenced by what happened to him when he was younger, both sexually and in his general attitude now towards those that he percieves as doing him wrong.

    Some quite funny bits in it too though - the guy who was done for robbing the Post Office and was caught because he used his own car and parked it outside :rotfl: :rotfl:
