(TNS) -- The Smithsonian Channel will present an hour-long documentary -- without re-creations or narration -- about David Berkowitz, the deadly murderer who dubbed himself "The Son of Sam" back in 1976. Consisting of media reports, interviews with people who knew the killer and home videos, "The Lost Tapes: the Son of Sam" recalls six murders that terrified the residents of New York and confounded the police until one bystander reported a suspicious man loitering in his car on her street. Premiering today, "The Lost Tapes: Son of Sam" is one of a series detailing infamous crimes. The next one examines the kidnapping of Patty Hearst and is slated for November.
