The Thief, His Wife and the Canoe tells the story of John Darwin, a man drowning in debt and close to financial ruin.

To avoid bankruptcy, he comes up with a creative solution: he fakes his own death in order to enable his wife to claim the life insurance money. While police are investigating his disappearance, John initially lives… right next door. Oh, and his children have no idea about what's really going on.

How did the couple manage to pull off such a scheme? How involved was his wife? More importantly, did John get away with it? Tune in to find out. This is the kind of bizarre true story that makes for gripping and exciting television.
