As the World Cup gives way to Wimbledon, non-sports fans are in no danger of running out of other things to watch this July, with All 4 dropping nothing less than the whole of Community online for free – joining exclusive US comedy box sets that include Search Party, Mr. Student Body President, Let’s Get Physical and Dawson’s Creek.
And, of course, there’s Walter Presents (see our separate guide to what’s coming soon to Walter Presents here).
Here’s what’s on the way in July 2018:

Interview with a Murderer
In this one-off documentary, criminologist Professor David Wilson conducts a series of revealing interviews with convicted murderer Bert Spencer, the man never charged with, yet widely suspected of killing paperboy Carl Bridgewater in 1978 – a crime he has always denied.
Women Who Kill
One third of the world’s female prison population is in America; 30,000 of them are serving long sentences for murder. But unlike many male murderers, female killers tend to know their victims. So what pushes ordinary women to kill people they know and love? This documentary meets three women behind bars for murdering people they knew. Each has an extraordinary story.
