If you're a fan of who-done-it mysteries, then Dateline is a must watch. Dateline is a show that has been on for many years, and the main focus is following the progress of a mystery. Not all mysteries premiered on the show are solved, but all evidence is documented and presented for the viewer to draw a conclusion from.

Dateline presents the story, and it will have interviews with persons involved in the incidents, directly or indirectly. Police officers who made an arrest, or did an interview, or were even on scene, are sometimes interviewed on the show to present evidence. While showing pictures and proof of the guilt or innocence of the featured person in each story, Dateline brings you from beginning to end of each mystery.

With a news type presentment of each case, you will learn who is a suspect, and why, as well as their alibis, and what the conclusion of the case may be to date. All facts are research on the show before being presented, so you know that you're getting the truth. Any evidence that is collected after a show might have aired is updated by adding text to the end of the show, or by a presenter giving a final update on the story.
