Freddie Mills was the light-heavyweight boxing champion of the world. He later opened a night club in Soho. On 25th July 1965, he was shot dead in his car outside the club.
At the time, the coroner’s verdict ruled that this was suicide, but his family have always maintained that he was murdered. This documentary by Simon Dales uses interviews and unseen footage in order to see if there is truth to the claims of murder.
Murder in Soho: Who Killed Freddie Mills? is on BBC Four at 21.00.
