Tuesday: The Crimes of Early ’60s Perth

It seems at first another true crime story. But the four-part “The Night Caller” (Sundance Now, streaming) is unusual because it takes place in Perth, Australia, and occurred nearly 60 years ago. Those who remember the reign of a serial killer (and inveterate hit and run driver) are asked to read headlines about it to jog the memory, and one suspect is asked to retrace his steps as an elderly man.
