Channel 4

The Fall: Skydive Murder Plot continues on Channel 4 with the second episode, airing on Wednesday, 12 June. This installment explores the shocking events that followed skydiver Victoria Cilliers’ routine parachute jump on Easter Sunday, 2015.

Victoria Cilliers recounts her traumatic experience during the jump, which quickly turned into a nightmare when both her main and reserve parachutes failed, causing her to plummet to the ground. Incredibly, she survived the fall, but the apparent “accident” sparked a two-year-long investigation led by detectives DC Maddy Hennah and DI Paul Franklin. The investigation uncovers a web of secrets in Emile’s life, including affairs, financial troubles, and involvement in sex clubs and escort services.
