NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC – Wednesday 22 October, 10.30pm

Ted Kaczynski killed three people and injured 23, sending the FBI on a US$50 million manhunt. Profilers suggested a blue-collar “average Joe” was behind the plot – but surprisingly, he turned out to be a mathematical whiz and former professor instead. Investigate how Ted Kaczynski’s childhood as a prodigy led him to academic glory at Harvard at the mere age of 16. There, he underwent strange and dangerous stress testing that possibly embedded in him a fear of technology that influenced his later rampage. Unravel his ingenious string of planted clues, starting in the 1970s, that kept entire cities on edge and the FBI guessing for decades.
