Three Identical Strangers

I've been wanting to see this and was ready to drop $3.99 on my cable system until I noticed CNN will be playing this Sunday, 1-27 at 9:00 pm.

 

It's a documentary about triplets separated at birth, and they didn't find out until they were 19 in the early 80's.  And evidently the adoption agency had a sketchy reason behind this.

 

If anyone has seen this, what were your thoughts?  Please don't post spoilers.

I think I saw this. Very interesting regarding the debate about genetics vs. environment.  Enjoy watching the show.

Re: Three Identical Strangers

I started watching this on Amazon.  Didn’t get through it and couldn’t get back to it before the 24 hour rental period was up. 

 

It was fascinating....will want to watch the rest (at no cost) when I can.

Re: Three Identical Strangers

Last night, I think it was Oxygen channel showed the 20/20 show about the separated twins and triplets from the Louise Wise Services adoption agency. The 20/20 show was from March, 2018.

The two Doctors that did the study had the study files sealed at the Yale University Archives until the year 2066.

 

The show did not interview the triplets. But they did show numerous photos and clips from them appearing on TV. And it did interview the Director of the documentary "The Twinning Reaction", Lori Shinseki.
