The Capital Weekender with Niall Gray 7pm - 10pm
Moors Murderer Ian Brady wants to be transferred to a Scottish prison to be allowed to die.
A judge has ruled that a hearing to decide if he can be moved will be made public.
It’s only the second time that such a hearing has been held in public and it will be a rare chance to see Brady in Public.
Brady and his partner, Myra Hindley, were responsible for the murders of five youngsters in the 1960s.
They lured children and teenagers to their deaths, with victims sexually tortured before being buried on Saddleworth Moor above Manchester.
Hindley died in jail in November 2002, aged 60.
Brady has spent the last 25 years at the high-security Ashworth Hospital.
