In The Du Plantier Case, a new RTÉ One documentary which airs tonight, the son of Sophie Toscan du Plantier talks about the impact of her death on him and his family. Pierre-Louis was 14 when the French film producer was found brutally murdered in West Cork.
The programme also hears unprecedented testimony from Sophie’s mother Marguerite Bouniol and her brother Bertrand.
The High Court refused to order Ian Bailey’s extradition to France. However, it is still possible that he will be tried ‘in absentia’ in Paris.
Reporter Philip Boucher Hayes also interviews Mr Bailey along with his partner Jules Thomas.
The Du Plantier Case airs tonight on RTÉ One at 9.35pm
