Frontline: Death By Fire (2010)

"The controversial execution of Cameron Todd Willingham, who allegedly murdered his three children in a fire, is revisited, including a look at new science that raises doubts about the fire being arson, which means Willingham could have been innocent.

Did Texas execute an innocent man? Several controversial death penalty cases are currently under examination in Texas and in other states, but it's the 2004 execution of Cameron Todd Willingham -- convicted for the arson deaths of his three young children -- that's now at the center of the national debate.

In Death by Fire, FRONTLINE gains unique access to those closest to the Willingham case -- meticulously examining the evidence used to convict Willingham, offering an in-depth portrait of those most impacted by the case, and exploring the explosive implications of the execution of a possibly innocent man."
