Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time – Tuesday, 9pm, Sky Arts

The Cannibal Next Door – Wednesday, 9pm, Channel 5
This is not a story for the faint of heart. In 2001, Armin Meiwes murdered and ate (yes, you read that right) a completely willing victim he had met on the internet. People close to the case tell the story in this stirring documentary.
