BIOGRAPHY® profiles the charismatic preacher whose faith and power led to the deaths of almost 1,000 followers. He was a heartland preacher with a penchant for fighting social injustice. He became a cult leader and, very probably, one of the worst mass-murderers ever.

Twenty years after the tragedy of Jonestown, Guyana, the name Jim Jones still evokes shock, horror and disbelief. With each new piece of evidence that emerges, Jones' legacy drifts further from misguided visionary to megalomaniacal killer.

To tell his story, BIOGRAPHY® journeys from Indianapolis, where he founded the People's Temple in 1953, to the Guyanese jungle. Discover how he won followers with passionate battles for social equality and justice for the poor, and how his worthy instincts were corrupted over time. Hear from people who knew him and relive the disaster that stunned the world through extensive footage. Finally, examine the evidence that suggests that many of Jones' followers did not volunteer to kill themselves.

JIM JONES is the harrowing tale of a man whose faith in God transformed itself into a twisted belief in himself as god.
