Amazon announces Three Mothers

Amazon Prime Video has announced a three part Amazon Original documentary series commissioned from Firecrest Films.

Three Mothers, Two Babies and a Scandal is set in the wild west days of the infancy of the internet. In 2000, Alan and Judith Kilshaw adopted twin baby girls from the U.S. and brought them home to north Wales. Within days, they found themselves at the centre of the biggest media storm of the new millennium, as stories emerged alleging the Kilshaws had bought the babies online for £8,000. An extraordinary transatlantic battle blew up when an American couple claimed the two baby girls had been kidnapped from their home in California. Then the birth mother entered the fray to claim the babies back.

Three Mothers revisits these astonishing events and the ripples they caused across the world. For the first time, all three mothers speak out, setting the record straight with powerful testimony and reflection.

Directed by Alice McMahon-Major and produced by Zehra Yas, the executive producers are Nicole Kleeman and Vari Innes.
