A BBC documentary exploring whether American Amanda Knox is guilty of helping murder her flatmate Meredith Kercher drew over 700,000 viewers on average.

The broadcast especially drew a young crowd, according to ratings advisory firm Attentional. 

The one-hour special focused on the latest developments of the case–Knox’s guilty verdict was upheld by an Italian judge on January 30 after the verdict was previously overturned in a lower court.

Filmmakers and journalists Paul Russell and Andrea Vogt, who have followed the Meredith Kercher murder case since it began in Nov. 2007, produced the special, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

It included itnerviews with experts from both sides as well as Stephanie and Lyle Kercher, Meredith’s brother and sister.
