The Last Executioner
Off With His Head!
Fernand Meysonnier is France's last executioner. Over the years, he has helped chop off the heads of 200 people.
In a small village in Provence an old man packs up a selection of terrifying torture instruments. This is M. Meysonnier, chief executioner until the guillotine was axed by the government in 1977. He performed his first execution at 14 as an apprentice, and never looked back.FULL SYNOPSIS
