Accused: The Hampstead Paedophile Hoax, 11 March, 2024, Channel 4

Channel 4

In this Channel 4 documentary, airing on 11 March 2024 at 9.00pm, viewers are taken back to February 2015, when a shocking and false accusation rocked a community in north London. Two children from a local primary school accused their parents and teachers of being part of a satanic paedophile cult that engaged in the horrific act of eating babies.

Despite there being no truth to these allegations, the situation took an unexpected turn when videos of the children’s testimonies were uploaded online. This provided fertile ground for conspiracy theorists who eagerly embraced the story as fact. The sensational Hampstead tale became a rallying point for believers in various conspiracy theories around the globe.

This film focuses on four mothers who found themselves at the centre of these outrageous accusations and their tireless quest for justice. Their lives were profoundly affected by the fallout from these false claims.

The repercussions extended far beyond mere speculation, as protests erupted with demonstrators chasing a priest through Hampstead. Even more alarmingly, a conspiracy theorist from the United States traveled to London, claiming to be armed with a knife while seeking access to the school.

Throughout this eight-year ordeal, legal battles ensued as those wrongly accused fought tirelessly for justice. These battles culminated in the sentencing of a 74-year-old German pensioner who received an unprecedented punishment for his relentless online trolling and harassment related to this case.

Join Channel 4 on 11 March 2024 at 9.00pm for this thought-provoking documentary that sheds light on one family’s false accusations and the far-reaching consequences they endured in their pursuit of truth and justice.
