Madeleine McCann has been missing for 10-years after she disappeared from the Portuguese town of Praia de Luz on May 3, 2007.

Her parents, Kate and Gerry McCann have vowed to do “whatever it takes for as long as it takes” to find her.

Tragically, little concrete evidence has come to light in the intervening years to help find Madeleine, who was three years old at the time, despite police forces from two countries working to track her down and a media frenzy surrounding the case.

New BBC Panorama documentary Madeleine McCann: 10 Years On takes a look back over the disappearance in an attempt to find out what really happened.

Here’s everything you need to know about the show:
