Shani Grimmond was the ultimate ‘it girl’ of the 2010s. It all started on Tumblr where she went by the handle 'Vans and Spray Tans. When she was 16 she made the move to YouTube, sharing makeup tutorials and daily vlogs alongside her school best friend, Chloe Szep. Her videos began attracting hundreds of thousands of views, with Shani seen as the girl next door. Her channel reached new heights when the ultimate boyfriend of Instagram, Jonathan Sauer entered the scene.The 23-year-old accountant quickly became her manager and the pair became #couple goals. But it wasn’t long before fame became overwhelming for the self-confessed introvert. In this series we explore the phenomenon of Shani Grimmond and what happens when you want to pull back and live a more private life.

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
