On Monday, October 12th, HISTORY premiered two Texas Crew-produced specials about the infamous story of Alcatraz! First, Inside Alcatraz: Legends of the Rock divulged the ins and outs of Alcatraz, with personal stories from guards, prisoners, and others who lived on the island. And an hour later, the groundbreaking investigation of the mysterious Alcatraz escape premiered. In 1962, John Anglin, Clarence Anglin and Frank Morris broke out of the toughest penitentiary America had ever conceived–Alcatraz. Presumed dead, their bodies were never found. Now, more than 50 years later, the family of the Anglin brothers is coming forward for the first time with new evidence and secrets that could crack open this iconic cold case. Alcatraz: Search for the Truth follows the family as they work alongside a retired lawman who has been obsessed with this case for decades. Together they will go further than anyone has ever been able to go before to solve the “Riddle of the Rock” once and for all.
