MADDY WATCH – Anorak’s at-a-glance guide to press coverage of Madeleine McCann

DAILY EXPRESS front page: “Madeleine – The three crucial moment revealed”

“MADELEINE: THE THREE ‘WINDOWS OF OPPORTUNITY’ FOR AN INTRUDER – MADELEINE McCann died during one of three narrow time slots on the evening of May 3, police now believe”

The Express has been watching the TV in Portugal, a documentary produced by the broadcaster RTP. The show “endeavoured to ignore the vast amount of speculation surrounding the events of May 3 and concentrate only on established facts.” It is not know if the show featured front pages from the Daily Express, but it is unlikely

THE SUN: “Maddie: Three crucial moments”

The Sun is also watching TV in Portugal. The show is called Anatomy Of A Mystery

The three “crucial moments, as told by an entertainment show on the telly. (The disappearance of Madeleine McCann is not a work of fiction for our entertainment; it is real)

“The FIRST period is between 7.30pm and 8.30pm, during which Kate put the children to bed and Gerry returned from playing tennis… Journalist Sandra Felgueiras, who researched the timeline for a Portuguese TV documentary, said: “Police assume the child could have died before dinner”

“The SECOND period is when Gerry checked on the children at 9pm. He says he saw Maddie alive and spent 15 minutes on his way back chatting to TV producer Jeremy Wilkins

“The THIRD period is when Kate went to the apartment around 10pm and then said Maddie had disappeared…

Says McCann spokesman Clarence Mitchell: “We are not going to comment on another speculative Portuguese report. Kate and Gerry know they had nothing to do with Madeleine’s disappearance”

DAILY MAIL: “Kate McCann screamed from the BALCONY ‘they’ve taken her’, claims new witness”

But didn’t “the 39-year-old GP raise the alarm by shouting: “Madeleine’s gone, Madeleine’s gone”?

Now a waiter at the Ocean Club says he heard otherwise. He hears Kate McCann says: “They’ve taken her, they’ve taken her, they’ve taken our little girl”

DAILY MIRROR: “McCanns put on trial by TV”

Not trial by newspaper…

“Detectives remain convinced the McCanns were involved in Madeleine’s disappearance, a Portuguese TV documentary has claimed”

DAILY TELEGRAPH: “’Three key moments’ for Madeleine McCann”

On with the show: “Investigative reporter Sandra Felgueiras, who presents the programme, said: ‘We spoke to many people involved in the investigation and we are certain that the timeline is the best ever produced. Our police sources confirmed that this is the most accurate version of events produced to date”

Yes, that Sandra Felguerias

Gerry and Kate McCann are both “doctors”

VANCOUVER SUN:  JOHN Austin MP says the British media, the public and police have largely ignored the recent story of 48 trafficked children who went missing while in the protective custody of social service agencies in England.

As reported on “The children, aged 10 to 17 and mostly girls from Africa and China, are believed to be back in the hands of organized crime figures who originally smuggled them into England to work as child prostitutes.

Meanwhile, the British media, the public and authorities obsess every day about the whereabouts of a pretty blond four-year-old, Madeleine McCann, who went missing over the summer in Portugal.

“I find the dramatic contrast between (public attention to) the worldwide search for Madeleine, and the plight of 48 missing children in Britain, extraordinary,” says Austin.
